“One of the best.”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

Readily accessible from the city, the Adelaide Botanic Gardens is a peaceful and serene place to walk around. One of the highlights is the magnificent "hothouse".

“Adelaide Botanic Park”
Reviewed December 7, 2012

A very enjoyable afternoon was spent here in Adelaide Botanic Park just sauntering amongst the exotic trees and plants on a lovely sunny bright spring day. Take some refreshment at one of the cafes and check out the rainforest section. Just a moment's stroll from the bustle of the city centre.

“Shady and grassed, Botanic Park is adjacent to Adelaide Botanic Garden.”
Reviewed November 16, 2012

Botanic Park is alongside the Adelaide Botanic Garden. It is is a small-medium sized city park comprising an open grassed area with a feature being the huge Moreton Bay fig trees. These and other tall trees provide abundant shade in summer and a haven for city birds.
Botanic Park should not be confused with the adjacent Adelaide Botanic Garden which close at dusk. Many of the reviews in this thread are actually for the Botanic Garden!
Botanic Park is a popular place for picnics and can be booked for weddings and large events. On a warm summer evening it is common to see a lot of people enjoying themselves on the lawn with friends. On the northern side it is bound by the River Torrens and Adelaide Zoo. There is parking around the perimeter which is pay by meter. Toilets are in the adjacent gardens. Many locals use Botanic Park to walk or cycle through to reach the city.
