Peace and Friendship Garden

This reclaimed area of the Park Lands has been transformed into a native garden.

The area returned to the Park Lands following the closure of the waterworks depot was replanted in the early 1980s into a native garden featuring South Australian blue gum, river she-oak, and lemon scented gums.

In 1996, this garden was formalised as the Peace and Friendship Garden, dedicated to the late President of Egypt, Anwar Sadat and the late Prime Minister of Israel, Yitzhak Rabin. Both were Nobel Peace Prize recipients who were assassinated for their efforts to promote peace in the Middle-East. A memorial to this dedication was unveiled in the presence of the Consul-General of Egypt, Nabil Ibrahim, and the Consul-General to Israel, Mordechai Yedid.
