  The serenity of it all
by iandsmith

Favorite thing: Well, it's a number of parks really, but the point is that the city was laid out having a CBD with a park of approximately 2 blocks in length surrounding it. So, immediately outside the hustle of Rundle Street Mall there is this serene calming place to wander, overlooked by church and bottomed out by the Torrens.
There is no river on the western and southern approaches and overall the parks have the effect of bringing some sort of tranquility to you before you engage in the rigors of the city life, as well as providing lots of parking space.

Fondest memory: Sitting in the park near the Entertainment Centre watching the paddle boats and the ducks in the river.
