Frome Park / Nellie Raminyemmerin Park

This park is named after two prominent historical figures: Nellie Raminyemmerin and Captain Frome.

Nellie Raminyemmerin was a Kaurna woman who was kidnapped from the banks of the River Torrens / Karrawirra Pari and taken to Kangaroo Island in the 1800s. Captain Frome was the third Surveyor-General of Adelaide, and made a notable contribution to the development of the colony, taking on the additional duties of colonial engineer, running the Land Office, while also being an artist.
