Located between the Adelaide Botanic Gardens and the Adelaide Zoo, Botanic Park is a great place for a family picnic, a stroll in the park or just as a place to "chill out". Car parking can be difficult during busy periods, just as it was during our recent weekend visit. However, you can park some distance away and just enjoy... More

Always loved walking the Botanic Park around spring and autumn as there are so many colours of leaves available to take photos of. The place is so serene and lovely.

Ended up in the park by a coincidence. I was surprised by how big it was and how calm it was. I spent a few hours on a field just reading a book

Shaded by huge Mortan Bay Fig trees plus other trees, Botanic Park is a great place to have a picnic with your friends and family. If you get there early enough on a weekend you will find a place to park, very difficult on week days. Toilets and Cafe in the Botanical Gardens, which are very close by.

Went for an hour; spent several. The kids had a ball. Beautiful spaces and nice nooks and crannies with great features like the stone circle that kept them entertained for ages, the lily ponds and the beautiful conservatory. Opposite the park are some magnificent old Moreton Bay fig trees that served as a 'playground' for hours. Highly recommend for all... More

Enormous beautiful trees on a patch of grass. Great for nature lovers, a picnic, overseas visitors who have never seen trees like this and also to play hide and seek and other games! And at the start of autum, the leaves on the drive are so colourful... It is a pleasure to just be here and enjoy!

A varied and well laid out park well worth a stroll through or a longer walk on a nice day. Located a short walk from a city tram stop.
