City of Munno Para
|City of Munno Para|
The council was formed in 1933 by the amalgamation of the District Council of Munno Para East and a major central portion of the District Council of Munno Para West. The council bounds approximated an area known as the northern Para Plains, so called due to the proximity of the North Para, South Para and Little Para rivers.
1950s to 1997
Prior to the 1950s, most of the area surrounding the township of Smithfield was farming estates. In the post-war boom the Adelaide satellite city of Elizabeth was established about 4 kilometres (2.5 mi) south of the Munno Para township, boosting the population and urbanising the latter.
In 1988, the District Council of Munno Para was renamed to City of Munno Para.
