APPA offers two types of Guided walks through the Park Lands.   There are hosted 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.

Self-guided walks

We are in the process of producing "trail guides" 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.  Search for "Adelaide City Explorer" at the Google PlayStore or the iPhone App Store.   Alternatively, follow the links from the "Adelaide City Explorer" website.

If you don't have a smartphone or you'd prefer to bypass the smartphone app, you can stay within the "Adelaide City Explorer" website, on a laptop or tablet, at these links:

These are the only ones available, so far.   More self-guided walking "trail guides" will be coming soon. In the first quarter of 2019, we should have available the self-guided walking notes for:

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. Here are some of us:
