Formerly the site of degraded farming land, the Kaurna Park Wetlands at Burton provide a mixture of recycling innovation with some of the State's richest spiritual history.

One of the key features of Kaurna Park is the Wodliparri Trail, a winding path with a series of boardwalks leading visitors across a number of channels and through a growing array of native flora. Wodliparri is the Kaurna name for the Milky Way, and the extensive Adelaide Plain wetlands were a tremendous source of economic and spiritual wealth for the Kaurna people.

The wetland is both a home and a stopping point for a number of species of birds, animals and other fauna. Recycled wastewater from Kaurna Park is re-purposed for use in irrigating ovals, parks and the City's trees. Car parking is available.
