A Walk in the Park raises awareness and significant funds to help in the fight against Parkinson's disease. Your participation in the walk will help Parkinson's South Australia to continue to deliver support programs, services and advocacy to people affected by the disease.
Date of event: Sunday, 28 August, 9:30am registrations open. Warm up begins at 10:30am. The event finishes at around 1pm.
T-shirts: If you have your t-shirt from last year please select that you don't require another one. There will be limited t-shirts and sizes for registrations on the day.
Food and refreshments: Breakfast BBQ and coffee cart will begin from 9:30am and the sausage sizzle after the walk from 12pm. We will have cupcakes for sale at the marquee.
Route: The walk is a maximum of 4km around the River Torrens precinct, starting and finishing in Bonython Park near the kiosk. You may set your own walking goal and select shorter routes along the way. The route is wheelchair accessible with volunteers to assist.
Parking: Bonython Park is situated between Port Road and the River Torrens, across the road from Coca Cola. Free parking is available in the carpark off Port Road, and near the Old Gaol.
Some areas are restricted to 4 hours, but this should allow plenty of time to participate in the walk. Please note that we try to leave the carparks closest to the event for people with disabilities and impaired movement. Please try to respect this when choosing your park.
