Eden Field Archers grounds are located 10 Km south of Adelaide in the southern foothills.We lease approximately 4 hectares of the Shepherds Hill Recreation Park from The National Parks & Wildlife Service. Enter from Ayliffes Road, St Marys, via the double gates at the eastern end of the car park. The gate is usually closed and locked - it is a requirement of the National Parks that we keep it closed. On Saturdays and other tournament days, from about 12.30 - 1.15pm, there are always arriving club members who can open the gate for visitors. Follow the track for about 750 metres to our club room and car park. If you are driving watch out for walkers and cyclists and mountain bikers. Find a car park, and come on in and join us.
