Adelaide Oval event parking information

For Adelaide Oval Events that have a scheduled patronage of 20,000 or more the City of Adelaide will implement temporary 2P Event Parking and Event Parking Restrictions. The 2P Event Parking controls are designed to assist residents and businesses in North Adelaide and ensure that parking availability is maintained for those visitors who are not attending Adelaide Oval events.

The 2P Event Parking is not created for patrons attending the Adelaide Oval event.

Disability drop off and pick up zones

For your convenience disability drop off and pick up zones for event days are located at:

  • War Memorial Drive, out the front of Next Gen Health Clubs and Tennis SA, adjacent to Pinky Flat. This drop off zone must be accessed from the westerns side via Montefiore Road or Morphett Street Bridge (disability permit holders only).
  • King William Road, adjacent to the East Gate for north-bound traffic.
  • Pennington Terrace (northern end of Adelaide Oval)

Torrens Parade Ground parking

Limited disability parking is available in the Torrens Parade Ground for Adelaide Oval events. This is also managed by the Adelaide Oval Stadium Management Authority. Payment by card only. For enquiries please contact the Authority. 

On-street parking options

To assist with access (disability) parking for Adelaide Oval during events, companion parking is also available in War Memorial Drive and King William Road. 

In addition, disability parking permit holders are able to park on-street within any signed ‘2P event parking’ space for a total of 4 hours (double the 2 hours) when the event parking controls apply. It is important to note that the times indicated in designated disabled parking spaces do not permit additional time and permit holders are only entitled to the time specified on the sign.

The above concession/parking arrangements are only valid when the vehicle is being used to transport the disability parking permit holder. A valid disabled parking permit must be displayed so the number and expiry date are clearly visible from the exterior of the vehicle.
For further enquiries related to on-street parking please contact our customer centre.
