Flying Foxes Information

If you see flying foxes in the Park, please do not approach or handle them.

Flying foxes and bats are starting to venture across greater Adelaide in search of food.
We have not had any direct reports of flying foxes or bats in our Park to date, but there is a potential they are feeding in our trees at night before heading home to the Adelaide Zoo or other locations.
