City of Prospect is an inner urban local government area in Adelaide, South Australia.

About this space

Situated on Prospect Road at the corner of Alpha Road, the land on which Barker Gardens is situated was donated to Council by the Eleanor Barker in 1938.

The park features:

  • Seating and drinking fountain

  • Shade trees and lawn

  • Rose garden

  • Arbor

  • Art tiles and Amnesty Wall

Barker Gardens is a popular location for weddings and functions.

Open space areas play an important role in the lifestyle of our families as well as the positive impact they have on the amenity of our City. As such, council remains committed to maintaining these beautiful parks and recreational facilities for everyone to enjoy.

Please be aware of South Australia's ban on single-use plastic with drinking straws, stirrers and cutlery. Council has also adopted a 100% compostable (not biodegradable) approach to all crockery/cutlery and drinkware used in all our halls and parks along with a no balloon policy in our efforts to reduce landfill.

Please note set up and pack up must be included in your booking.
