Adelaide Park Lands Preservation Association, Inc (APPA)


We are a community-based, non-profit organisation dedicated to preserving, protecting and where possible restoring Adelaide’s world-unique heritage: the only city in the world surrounded by Park Lands – built INSIDE a park.

We have four ongoing activities designed to focus community attention on, and raise awareness of the rarity, beauty and world importance of the Adelaide Park Lands. These regular activities are:

the biennial Adelaide Park Lands Art Prize;

the Adelaide Park Lands ‘photo of the day’;

the ‘video of the month’; and

the Park Ambassadors Program, with guided walks through the Park Lands.
