Heritage Places of Adelaide

Pioneer Women's Memorial Garden

King William Road ADELAIDE

State Heritage Place

The garden, sundial, sculpture, seat and wall were erected to commemorate the contribution made by pioneer women to South Australia's development. These five elements of the garden are integral to the layout design and its heritage significance. The garden illustrates a greater acknowledgment, and a changing perception, of the role of women in the community. The sculpture, the work of Ola Cohn, was the first piece of Modernist public art in Adelaide.
