Join APPA Committee member (& Park 13 Ambassador) Hero Weston for a guided walk, learning about one of the most central and often-used parts of the Adelaide Park Lands.

The site of the annual 'Garden of Unearthly Delights' was once a despised rubbish dump and a quagmire.

Learn about the huge efforts as early as the 1880's to turn it into a much-loved outdoor venue space, as well as this Park's role providing air raid shelters in WW2.

No booking necessary. Gold coin donation. (Free for APPA members).

Wear sturdy shoes for a walk of just over 1.5 km; 75 to 90 minutes duration. Children and dogs welcome
