Narnungga translates to ‘native pine place’ in Kaurna, the traditional owners of the land. This was likely adopted due to the quantity of native pine in this area.

This park honours the life and work of Gladys Elphick (1904–1988). Aunty Gladys was a prominent Kaurna Elder and founding president of the Council of Aboriginal Women of South Australia (1964–1973) and known as a strong advocate for Kaurna women. She worked to raise the status of Aboriginal people in the community.
