The Olive Groves / Kuntingga (Park 7)

The Kaurna translation for Kuntingga is kunti root place, and the kunti root was eaten by the Kaurna people. A renowned characteristic of the park is the state heritage listed olive groves.  Given that Kuntingga and Parngutilla are small and adjacent to one another, the same English language name for each is used.
