Planned by Colonel William Light in his vision for Adelaide, the parklands encircling the city center remain the envy of many large cities around the world. Adelaide's diverse parklands lend the city its style. Made up of separate parks, gardens and sports grounds there is plenty for everyone; walking trails, cycle tracks, picnic areas and spots to watch the world go by. Alternatively you can play golf, football or attend the races. Many events and festivals, from Writers Week to the Adelaide International Horse Trials, are held in the park lands throughout the year.
