Playford is a diverse community with many positive aspects such as its well established industry base, strong community spirit, wide open spaces, cultural diversity and affordable housing.
There is a blend of housing throughout Playford and urban development continues to spread with the establishment of new housing estates offering affordable housing in Andrews Farm, Blakeview, Craigmore and Hillbank. Many of the earlier established areas of Playford are earmarked for revitalisation.
When the City of Playford was formed, brining the Elizabeth and Munno Para areas together, a new corporate image was needed. A community competition was held with 77 logo entries received. Residents provided over 700 comments on the logos and the design by Mark Carnell, a graphic design student at the Regency Institute of TAFE was chosen as Playford's new corporate image.
The use of Sir Thomas Playford's signature in the design further strengthens the naming of the City in his honour in recognition of the contribution he made to the development of the former Elizabeth and Munno Para areas.The green area represents the crops and green open space prominent throughout our City.
