Rymill Park, also known as Park 14 or Mullawirraburka in Kaurna, is a recreation park located in the East Parklands of the South Australian capital of Adelaide. It is bordered by East and Dequetteville Terraces, and Rundle and Bartels Roads. It is in close proximity to the Adelaide Botanic Garden, Hutt Street, and Victoria Park.The park occupies 14.5ha, and is named after Sir Arthur Rymill, Lord Mayor of Adelaide from 1950 to 1954 and council member for 23 years. The lake was constructed in 1959 and the rose gardens were created in the 1960s by excavating what was then the Bartels Road rubbish tip. Rowboats are available for hire at the park's kiosk, exclusively for use on the park's lake. Other features of the park include rose gardens, playgrounds, avenues of well established trees, barbecue facilities and a statue of Alice by John Dowie, inspired by Lewis Carroll's stories for children.

  • Great location and venues for the Adelaide fringe in this area during march. Well laid out in regard to ticket booths, eating venues, bars, stages for performances, live acts, toilets and sit down areas. A must see place when the fringe is on.

  • Nice spot to have a relaxing time or go for a picnic. Sitting down on the bench and watching ducks is nice and peaceful.
  • This was always a great place for a picnic. I walked over the Malt Biscuit Memorial Bridge and had a great old laugh.
  • It's cool. Like my name kool kat
