Santa's top five reasons to visit the Park Lands

News just in from the North Pole: Santa has compiled his top five reasons to visit the Adelaide Park Lands this festive season.

During his recent visit to the City of Adelaide, Santa was so over-jollied that he sent us his personal list of reasons to visit the Park Lands. Yes, he really did come to town, City of Adelaide town.

1. There’s lots to see and do

There are 7,600,000 square metres of beautiful Park Lands in the city and 29 parks, filled with free amenities including courts and fitness facilities and playspaces .

Take a (well-deserved) break from your Christmas shopping or fill in time during that awkward period between Christmas and New Year’s with a visit to the Park Lands.

2. The perfect spot for your festive get-together

What better way to enjoy the festive season than a picnic or barbeque in a beautiful, central location. Get together with friends or family and organise that overdue catch up.

There are 49 free barbeque spots across the Park Lands to choose from!

3. Treat your furry friend

We love our furry friends dearly, and it can be hard to find the right present for them. What better gift for your furry friend than a *whispers* W-A-L-K in the park.

Visit a designated dog park and explore the Park Lands together.

Dog-friendly areas include Victoria Park, Historic Carriageway, Pityarilla Dog Park, Adelaide Himeji Garden and Historic Hutt Street.

4. Recharge in nature

Keeping active and moving your body helps you stay fit and healthy, both mentally and physically.

It can be as easy as a walk in the park – or cycle or run – or both! 

5. It's fun!

No one likes to have fun and spread holiday cheer more than Santa. Enjoy yourself, have festive fun and follow Santa's number one rule, spread some good old festive cheer.
