Rundle Park / Kadlitpina (Park 13)

This park is named after two prominent historical figures: Kadlitpina and John Rundle.  Kadlitpina was known to the colonists as Captain Jack; a well-known Kaurna elder at the time Adelaide was established, while John Rundle was one of the original directors of the South Australia Company which was formed in London in 1834 to promote settlement of the colony.

The park is home to several events throughout the year, including the Garden of Unearthly Delights which attracts over 800,000 people annually.
