Royal Park is located in the western suburbs of Adelaide. It is home to a large Polish community, as evidenced by the establishment of St Stanislaus of Cracow Catholic Church. Other ethnic groups represented include Italian, Croatian, Bosnian, Irish, Macedonian and Greek residents. It used to contain large numbers of public housing trusts but, in recent years, has seen large-scale developments that include private housing and a soon-to-be-built retirement village.
