Elder Park can be reached by the free CBD tram to Festival area and nice walk along the river. It is a lovely and well kept park, good for quiet rest, relaxation and perhaps a picnic.

Elder Park is a park by the river Torrens near the Adelaide Oval. It is part of the system enabling longer paths along the river. Good place for a picnic, too.

Elder Park is adjacent to the Festival Centre, across the Torrens River from Adelaide Oval and close to the city centre and Adelaide Railway Station. It is an ideal picnic spot with paddle boats and the "Popeye" close by. Highly recommended !

Beautiful path goes for miles, pretty historic foot bridges. You can walk, run, bike, rent a Segway, take a boat tour, grab a bite to eat or have a floating B-B-que. Lovely area near downtown.
