The Park Adelaide app helps you find parking in the City of Adelaide

The Park Adelaide app helps you find available on-street parking near your destination. Using real-time data and sensors, the app will direct you to the most convenient parking around the city.

Once you’ve found your park, the app lets you pay directly on your smart device. There’s no need to make payment at the Ticket Machine!
To find available parking, open the app to reveal the city map. The coloured markers (red, green, and amber) indicate the number of parks which are available.

Tapping a map marker will give you more information about the parking controls in that area. This includes hours of operation, time limits, parking fees, and other restrictions. By typing in your destination, the app can display and guide you to available parking options nearby.

To pay for parking via the app, you will need to create an account and log in. As an account holder, you’ll be able to remotely ‘top up’ your parking to the time limit, without having to return to your vehicle. You will also have the option to extend your parking for 15 minutes over the limit with a special Extend Stay purchase. You will be notified when your parking is about to expire which will help you know when you need to return to your vehicle.
Download the Park Adelaide app today and take the worry out of parking in the city.

I don’t hate the concept, but this is one of the most confusing, poorly designed apps I’ve ever used. The interface is a slow, jumbled mess. There’s no onbiarding to help you work out how anything works. Even down to simple thing like if I open the menu, all the items are listed twice. And I’m supposed to trust these developers with my credit card details. No thanks.

Paying for parking is unpleasant enough, and this app just makes it worse. I’ll just stick to buying a ticket at the machine.

Good concept

I use this app daily without issue, I’ve read some of the other reviews and am confused by what they say as the app isn’t that bad.

Gets better with each update, glad to see sign up with Apple ID has now been added, just needed to include Apple Pay as a payment option now.

THE single most useless app I have ever used

Just wasted 20mins of my life trying to find the bay KI210 on the Kintore Ave list. Almost through my phone in frustration. The developers should be ashamed and go back to school. It scares me that tax payer dollars are paying for muppet services like this. Do not launch something until it works (funny as I think it was launched some 2 years or more ago and it was terrible then too- I just crossed my fingers praying it had changed)
