"A quiet and tranquil suburb"

Vale Park is a very quiet, neat little nook just above the Torrens and east of the city. Perfect for Middle Aged families with children and seniors, who used to make up most of its population but now their houses are being torn down and replaced with ugly townhouses. Save the beautiful old historical Vale Park!

"Vale Park, Home Sweet Home!"

Vale Park is one of my favorite suburbs in Adelaide. There are well-kept houses in the area. There are lovely old bungalows now replaced with the new courtyards and more expensive larger homes.

The neighbourhood is know to its friendly neighbours and the River Torrens.

Getting into the city isn't too difficult, with it only 10 minutes to the city!

Everything is great about Vale Park!

"A quiet suburb on the edge of the Torrens and close to the city"

This quiet residential suburb has everything you need all within a short walk or drive away.
Nestled in behind Walkerville and nudging the River Torrens, Vale Park is a great location for a relaxed lifestyle just moments from the city.

Connecting to your work in the CBD is easy. It is just a short drive (about 15 minutes), or there is convenient public transport with frequent buses on Walkerville Terrace.

There are a number of sporting options nearby, including a large oval and tennis courts, not to mention the long walking trails around the River Torrens.

This is a great spot for raising a family. Schools nearby include St Andrews (a private primary school), Walkerville Primary, Wilderness (a private girl's school) and St Peter's College (a private boy's school).

There are a number of shopping options in the surrounding suburbs, such as the large Avenues complex in Magill just a short drive away. There is also a huge new complex currently under construction in Walkerville (to be completed in 2011), which will be very convenient as it is only a 5 min stroll away.

If you're looking for a bite to eat or night out, you'll need to look to the nearby suburb of North Adelaide (with a large selection of bars, cafés, restaurants and pubs) or Rundle Street in the East End of Adelaide.
