Reserves for Hire

The City of Port Adelaide Enfield is a major provider of open space facilities for sport and recreational activities. In addition to reserves and ovals for structured sport, there are large open space areas for a variety of activities with family and friends plus a number of smaller parks and gardens located throughout the city. Some of these medium to smaller grassed areas provide picnic and BBQ facilities, while others provide safe, functional and attractive playground facilities for children. A number of the City's parks also include substantial landscaped garden areas offering the perfect backdrop for picnics, BBQs, special occasions or as a wedding venue.
