The Elder Park Rotunda was erected in 1882. The ironwork for the fountain was constructed at the Saracens foundry in Glasgow. The Popeye boat is launched off the banks of the River Torrens, near Elder Park as well as paddleboats. The Torrens Linear Park also passes through Elder Park.
Another Elder Park exists in the Govan area of Glasgow, Scotland; this urban park was gifted to the community by the wealthy philanthropist widow Isabella Elder and named in memory of her late husband John, a successful shipbuilder.
