Located at 34.97°S 138.59°E, it is 58m Above Mean Sea Level, and about 5km south of the Adelaide city centre. The suburb's borders are Cross Road (north), Goodwood Road (east), Edward Street (south) and Winston Avenue (west). It is diagonally opposite Colonel Light Gardens (to the south-east) and Kings Park, (to the north-east), and adjoins Westbourne Park (east), Clarence Gardens (west) and Clarence Park (north).


Cumberland Park is mainly a residential suburb, with a number of shops and businesses along Goodwood Road. These include a Big W with an adjoining Woolworths supermarket on the Cross Road corner. The shopping centre, which opened in the 1970s, was redeveloped in 2013.

A notable tenant in the corner of that car park, (diagonally opposite McDonalds), was, for many years, The Welsh Cafe, possibly Australia's only Welsh eating place. It closed in early 2013.[2]

Cumberland Park Post Office opened on 1 November 1993, replacing the Clarence Park Post Office.[3] It closed in 2011.


Cabra Dominican College, a private Catholic coeducational college that serves grades six to twelve, (once administered by the Dominican Nuns), is located on Cross Road.
