Rymill Park, which is also famously called as Mullawirraburka in the language of Kaurna, is a fascinating park situated in the Eastern Adelaide Parklands of the Adelaide, the South Australian capital. Rymill Park is bordered by Dequetteville and East Terraces, and Bartels Roads and Rundle. It is located in very close proximity to the Hutt Street, Adelaide Botanic Garden and Victoria Park. So, you can visit this park whenever you come to visit Victoria Park, the popular park. The Rymill park is also called as Park 14.

The park occupies a big area and it is named after the famous Lord Mayor of Adelaide between 1950 to 1954, Sir Arthur Rymill, and he was also a member of council for 23 years. The rowing lake in the island and rose gardens were constructed in the 1960s by excavation of certain parts of the park region, what was then led to the rubbish tip of Bartels Road. It consists of a lake with rose gardens, rowboats, a kiosk, Rymill park playgrounds and barbecue facilities.



The park is a entertaining site for many major events with the inclusions of the International Horse Trials of Adelaide, Carnevale in Adelaide and some other events like the Fringe and Feast festivals of Adelaide .

After the lake being drained in the year 2007, the Rymill rowing lake was again refilled in the year 2008.
