A sense of appreciation for our unique open space
The Adelaide Park Lands are our unique and priceless heritage. As a city in a park, Adelaide's surrounding open space is something to be treasured. And Karrawirra (Park 12) is one of these parks. Recently I've had the privilege of joining in on a guided walk through Karrawirra. The walk was run by the Adelaide Park Lands Preservation Association as part of their park ambassadors program.
Karrawirra consists of the section of the park lands located to the north of Victoria Drive. It is 14 hectares in size and acts as a buffer between the city and its northern suburb. It is home to numerous gardens, sculptures, memorials and landmarks.
The Garden of Remembrance is a tribute to South Australian women's contributions during the first world war. It includes the Eternal Flame and the 12-metre high Cross of Sacrifice aligning to St Peter's Cathedral.
