What to expect along the trail

This trail leads you along the historic elm carriageway, which has been a fixture of the Adelaide Park Lands since the 1800s. Follow the trail beyond the carriageway past the Adelaide Himeji Garden, a beautifully manicured Japanese pocket of the park lands, and through to the modern Pityarilla Activity Hub.
