Ada Ryan Gardens



Ada Ryan Gardens is Whyalla’s most popular park located between Cudmore and Watson Terraces, and linked to the Whyalla Foreshore to provide a large, relaxing park area.

The gardens offer extensive and well shaded lawns and gardens; free barbecue and picnic facilities, free tennis courts, playground equipment and public toilet facilities. The gardens have paved paths throughout, enabling wheelchair access.

The gardens were named after the wife of the Chairman of the then City Commission, Charles Ryan and was once Whyalla’s first cemetery, which was moved in August 1918 to the current cemetery in Broadbent Terrace.

Due to current health advice on social distancing, please contact the business for the most up to date information regarding opening times and services.
