The best way to explore the Adelaide Park Lands is on foot as part of a Guided Walk.  See our Guided Walks schedule.

Below is a guide and links to photo albums for each of the named and numbered Parks that, in their entirety, make up the Adelaide Park Lands.  They form a figure-8 double garland around the city and North Adelaide, something unparalleled in any other city in the world.
