Rymill Park, also known as Park 14 or Mullawirraburka in Kaurna, is a park located in the East Parklands of the South Australian capital of Adelaide. It is bordered by East and Dequetteville Terraces, and Rundle and Bartels Roads. It is in close proximity to the Adelaide Botanic Garden, Hutt Street, and Victoria Park.
The park occupies 14.5 hectares (36 acres), and is named after Sir Arthur Rymill, Lord Mayor of Adelaide from 1950 to 1954 and council member for 23 years. The lake and rose gardens were created in the 1960s by excavating what was then the Bartels Road rubbish tip. It features a lake with rowboats, rose gardens, playgrounds, and a kiosk and barbecue facilities.
After being drained in November 2007, to make repairs addressing the leaking of 200,000 litres (53,000 US gal) per week, the lake was refilled in September 2008.
