APPA offers two types of Guided walks through the Park Lands. There are walks with a Park Ambassador, and there are also self-guided walks, using a smartphone app (or website) to either read, or hear commentary through selected sections of the Park Lands.
We are in the process of producing "trail guides" material for each of the separate Parks that together make up the Adelaide Park Lands. As each trail guide is completed the National Trust is making it available through their "Adelaide City Explorer" website and smartphone app. If you have a smartphone, we suggest downloading the app, for the best experience. Just follow the links from the "Adelaide City Explorer" website.
Alternatively if you prefer to bypass the smartphone app, you can stay within the "Adelaide City Explorer" website:
More self-guided walking "trail guides" will be coming soon. We expect that by June 2018 there will be at least a dozen different trail guides available, for self-guided tours through different parts of the Adelaide Park Lands.
APPA GUIDED WALKS
APPA has several Park Ambassadors - simply volunteers who've agreed to once a year, lead a guided walk through "their" Park, i.e. their favourite chosen part of the Adelaide Park Lands. It's just a few people helping to share the love of the Adelaide Park Lands - each of us sharing our favourite part with you.
The next few Guided walks are:
The first guided walk was held in Nantu Wama (Park 6) on Saturday afternoon 3 June 2017. Some participants posted photos and comments on our Facebook event page: https://www.facebook.com/events/1351169044960863/
On Saturday 8 July, despite a foreboding weather forecast, 15 hardy souls and two dogs joined us for a walk around Karrawirra (Park 12). including the Grundy Gardens along the Torrens Riverbank, Peace Park, and the Garden of Remembrance. Fortunately the rain held off....
On Saturday 12 August, a sunny afternoon attracted another 15 participants for a walk around Rundle Park/Kadlitpina (Park 13)
Each walk is free for APPA members, and a gold coin donation is requested for others. Children and dogs are most welcome.
