A City as diverse as Adelaide, we strive to ensure that there is a place to everyone's unique activity needs.
Bragg Park / Ngampa Yarta - North Adelaide Dog Park
Located between Le Fevre Road and Robe Terrace, a dedicated place where registered dog-owners can exercise and play with their pets. There are two secure sections in the park – one for smaller dogs and puppies and one for all dogs to run free. Other key features of the park include tunnels for doggy fun, sheltered-seating, plenty of natural shade, green turf and drinking fountains.
Pityarilla Dog Park - South Park Lands
Located at the Northern end of Glen Osmond Road, the park is part of the Pelzer Park / Pityarilla Activity Hub. There are separate enclosed sections for large and small dogs to exercise with their owners.
Dog-owners also have the opportunity to exercise their pets at other parks around the city that are designated as off-leash areas in the Park Lands.
Playing tennis, basketball or netball is easy in the City. Some courts are ‘community only’, meaning they are available free of charge seven days a week during daylight hours. These courts cannot be booked.
A large number of courts are licensed to sporting organisations and educational institutions. This gives them first right of use but can be used by the community outside of these times and other bookings.
The City has plenty of community pétanque pistes (or boccé if you prefer) to play on. Locate a piste and try them all out as each one has a very different setting.
Model Aircraft Park
The flying of model aircraft in the City requires Council permission. So the best and most convenient way to fly your model aircraft is at our model aircraft park in Veale Park / Walyu Yarta behind Veale Gardens. You don’t need permission to fly here.
Use of model aircraft is also permitted in Victoria Park / Pakapakanthi south of the central gardens/pathways. You must reframe from flying a model aircraft on or over the southern sports fields if they are being used by other members of the community. Model aircraft use is not permitted on or near the Criterium Track (Requires a hyperlink) in Victoria Park / Pakapakanthi at any time.
Alternatively, you can join one of the many clubs operating in the Adelaide Park Lands. The SA Radio Controlled Helicopter Club have priority use of the Model Aircraft Park every Saturday and Sunday from 8.00am to 1.00pm.
Model Boating Pond
Located in Bonython Park / Tulya Wardli by the Road Safety Centre, this pond has been home to model boating enthusiasts since the 1960s. The pond is used every Tuesday and every second Saturday of each month and forth Sunday of each month by model boating groups.
