What do the chosen road names mean?

    • Road reserve no. 1 - Mulberry Road (historical usage);

    2000 mulberry trees were planted to raise silk worms in the 19th century for the enjoyment and interest of patients. This activity achieved international fame as Dr Cleland was asked to prepare an exhibit for the London Exhibition in 1886.

    • Road reserve no. 2 – Harriet Lucy Drive (eminent person);

    The first Matron of Glenside Hospital from 1870 to 1901.

    • Road reserve no. 3 - Karrayerta Drive (Aboriginal names);

    The Kaurna term Karrayerta was recorded for the Burnside area by CH Harris, a Department of Lands surveyor in the early twentieth century who had an interest in Indigenous place names. He defined this as 'gum trees on the margin of [a] stream'; a more contemporary translation might be 'redgum country'.

    • Road reserve no. 4 - Cramond Drive (eminent person);

    In accordance with this process, an opportunity now exists to recognise those, in particular “eminent persons” as referred to in the assessment criteria that have made a contribution to the delivery of health services. Dr (Prof) William Cramond was a leader of de-institutionalisation, one of the core design principles of the new health facilities.

    • Road reserve no. 5 - Eucalyptus Lane (thematic (flora)).

    While this name was nominated without a formal rationale, further investigation has indicated that there are Eucalyptus trees on the site that have been identified by the Aborist as making an important contribution to the character of the local area, as well as being a important contributor to the maintenance of biodiversity in the local environment.

    • Road reserve no. 6 - Alexander Deane Street (eminent person).

    Alexander Deane was the head gardener at the previous hospital and heavily involved in plantings etc for the property.
