7. Mann Terrace – connection to the adjacent Park

In the 1860s and 1870s olive trees were one of the most widely planted trees in the Adelaide Park Lands, because of their fast growth and usefulness.

Although the olives are gone from this Park you don't have to look far to see them. Just across Mann Terrace are Parks 7 and 8 known as 'The Olive Groves' or by their Kaurna names Kuntingga and Parngutilla.

These two small Parks retain their original 1860s olive groves. They are listed as a State Heritage place.
