Lifestyle

This dreamy city-fringe locale offers the perfect lifestyle with its character-rich homes, easy commute and access to the neighbouring café and dining scenes. Literally on the doorstep of the beautiful Adelaide Park Lands, Parkside may be small in size but it packs a real punch when it comes to urban living.

Families flock to the area to take advantage of nearby schools, while students and singles pounce on highly sought-after properties that are within strolling distance to the city and surrounds. Well-maintained bike and walking paths make it easy to get around. Cross over Greenhill Road and everything becomes a whole lot greener–playing fields, playgrounds and the serene Himeji (Japanese) Garden are all on the doorstep.

Traders along Glen Osmond Road are upping their game with boutiques and cafés moving into the neighbourhood. Enduring local watering holes including the Earl of Leicester and the Parkside Hotel draw crowds from near and far. Locals don’t have to wander too far from home to be amongst the vibrancy of neighbouring Unley, Hyde Park and Adelaide CBD for world-class dining and entertainment.

Neighbours

It is all about ease and convenience in Parkside so it is little surprise that Parkside attracts the full spectrum of ages and backgrounds. Being in close proximity to stellar schools and facilities is particularly appealing to young families. Students, expats, young couples and singles also adore living on the city fringe and lapping up all that the Parkside lifestyle has to offer.

Locals love

As the name suggests, Parkside borders the sprawling Southern Park Lands. It’s a short walk to the Himeji (Japanese) Garden, colourful Veale Garden and further north to Victoria Park which comes complete with a criterion track, a learn-to-ride path, café and running loop. Nearby Unley Oval is iridescent green year-round and has an off-leash dog zone.

Come summer festival season, locals relish their prime position minutes across the Park Lands. Leave the car at home and experience all that the festival season in Adelaide has to offer.

Locals are treated to fantastic shopping in every direction. Unley, Greenhill, Fullarton and Glen Osmond Roads provide everything required to eat, drink and make a stylish home–all within strolling distance.

Property

With gracious sandstone facades and the occasional bluestone gem, Parkside streets satisfy lovers of classic heritage cottages and elegant Victorian Villas. Picket fences and jacarandas add to the charm of the neighbourhood. Smaller workmen’s cottages and a few retro unit complexes can be found dotted around the suburb, welcoming students and young professionals.
