Alongside the path to our left you can see a creek or watercourse in an artificial bluestone-lined channel.

This waterway doesn't flow all year, but after rain it channels water through the eastern Park Lands and eventually drains into the Botanic Gardens lake about a kilometre north. Before European settlement, this would have been a major camping area for the Kaurna people, with the watercourse providing a wealth of natural resources.
