About the Walking Route

A 90-minute tour developed by the Adelaide Park Lands Association. This tour is of a Park with two halves – a Park split in two by a railway line, with two very different stories. One part of this Park is a newly-planted urban forest. The other part is reserved for sport.

You’ll see and learn about Adelaide’s newest urban forest and its resurrection as Park Lands after 130-years of being a water depot. You’ll also see the multi-million dollar new sporting facilities and landscaping opposite the Royal Adelaide Hospital and the links between this Park and 20th century railway workers.

Start the route on West Terrace, opposite Hindley Street.

This Trail is on the traditional land of the Kaurna people. First Nations people are advised that this Trail Guide contains the name and an image of a person who has died.
