Apparently this park is built on top of a cemetery, and there are rumors of ghost sightings at night. That said, it is a nice place to sit on a sunny afternoon! Also has 2 Pokémon Go gyms if you are into that.

Beautifully presented and maintained park in the heart of Gawler. Stopped for coffee and strolled over to the nearby information centre.

This park was around when I was growing up and it is still holding community events. It is green and has a country feel to it when the stalls are up.

A historic park with green lawns adjacent a busy intersection. The highlight for me was the very old River Red Gums with native Adelaide Rosellas. A nice place to relax within a short walk of major shopping and dining options.
