National heritage listed open green public spaces
Originally laid out by Colonel Light, the Adelaide Park Lands are now listed as a national heritage place consisting of several separate parks which together total approximately 700 hectares. These parks remain open unfenced, unwalled and unlocked, green with trees, grassland and gardens, and in public ownership not privatised.

red gum park
Karrawirra


Located to the north of Victoria Drive is Karrawirra. Also known as Red Gum Park, it houses the SA Naval Memorial, Garden of Remembrance, Statue of King George V and Angas Memorial. Be sure to check it out if you're interested in history.

blue gum park
Kurangga


Kurangga is a great place for staying active with the many different sporting and outdoor activities on offer. You can choose between petanque, biking, netball and basketball. This Blue Gum Park is also home to the first-ever playground to be built in the park lands.

bonython park
Tulya Wardli


Last but not least, the very popular Tulya Wardli, or more commonly called Bonython Park, continues to attract numerous families because of its amazing adventure playspace. But, what you may not know is that there is, I believe, an equally fascinating native bee hotel within its nearby magic forest. And, your outing with the kids might just turn into a biological science lesson without them even knowing it.
