You already know that the Adelaide Park Lands are unique. There's no other city on earth ringed by public parklands. What you may not know is the long and winding history behind them. They weren't always picture perfect and it took a long and concerted effort to build and protect them.
Join ambassador Peter Sansom on Sunday, May 2nd, for a leisurely guided stroll around an exceptionally beautiful part of the Adelaide Park Lands - Veale Gardens. The tour will also take in the wider Veale Park beyond the formal gardens.
There's plenty to learn about as you walk with the knowledgeable volunteers from the Adelaide Park Lands Preservation Association. Those rolling hills weren't always there. Find out just how much has changed, including the re-greening efforts going on in the park to restore native bushland.
Children are welcome. So are dogs on leads. The tour starts at 2 pm and wraps up at 3.30 pm. It begins at the tram stop on Peacock Road, near South Terrace. Tickets are $7.50 for adults and $5 concession.
