Partial closure of Botanic Park from 3 February

02 February 2017

Date posted: 02 February 2017

The arrival of legendary US singer-songwriter James Taylor isn't far away (Thursday 9 February), but it means part of Botanic Park will be closed to the public until Monday 13 February.

If you're planning to visit Botanic Park from Friday 3 February, be aware that the portion of the Park east of the Moonlight Cinema site to Hackney Road will be closed for the set-up, concert and pack-up.

This portion of the Park will reopen on Monday 13 February.

In the meantime, the western side of Botanic Park (from the Moonlight Cinema site towards Frome Road) will be open to the public as usual.

Plane Tree Drive and the bike path will also be business as usual for most of this time, so you can still access Adelaide Botanic Garden, Adelaide Zoo, etc.

From 3:30pm on Thursday 9 February, however, Plane Tree Drive/Botanic Road will be closed and vehicle access restricted due to the concert. If you've already parked there during the morning, you won't have to move your car and can leave whenever, but if you try to enter the carpark after 3:30pm it'll be closed (back to normal after around 1am).

If you're keen to see James Taylor, Bernard Fanning and Kasey Chambers live in Botanic Park, there are still tickets available!
