Bragg Park / Ngampa Yarta (Park 5)

Ngampa Yarta is a Kaurna word which refers to a type of native vegetable eaten by Kaurna people at the time of Adelaide’s establishment.  The family of scientific pioneers Sir William Henry Bragg and his son, Sir William Lawrence Bragg, lived at the park’s nearby Lefevre Terrace in the late 1800s. The pair were awarded the joint Nobel Prize in 1915 for their work on x-rays.
