Lundie Gardens are one of the few spots in the Adelaide City Centre where you can bring along your pooch to share in the fun. While not many places refuse dogs, here you can not only bring them along but let them run leash-free. It is also just a fun place to have a picnic in the Southern Parklands.
The are of Lundie Gardens is wide and open, with a few trees for shade. Here you can undo the leash and let your dogs run around free. Bring along a frisbee or some tennis balls and let your dog have fun. The gardens are located on South Terrace, so you'll want to be careful that your four-legged friend doesn't run too near the road. Pet-free people can still enjoy the gardens, there is heaps of space for kicking the footy or a game of soccer.
If you are considering heading to Lundie Gardnes then pack up a picnic or bring some meat. There are barbecues at the gardens as well as plenty of picnic tables and benches, or nice plots of grass where you can lay down a blanket. You can cook up your own feast, or just have a few snacks for the day. There are also toilet facilities at the garden, so you can bring along plenty of drinks without having to worry.
If the kids get bored of playing with the dogs or running around, they can head next door to the Princess Elizabeth Playground. Here you'll find some fun play equipment and a fenced in are for kids to run free. The Playground it right next to the main picnic and barbecue area, so you can eat your lunch while still being able to watch the kids play. Just remember that no dogs are allowed in the playground area.
