Nes­tled between Gold­en Grove and Sal­is­bury, this park is a fan­tas­tic intro­duc­tion to the bush, a peace­ful place to unwind from city life, a pop­u­lar des­ti­na­tion for walk­ers, and an adven­ture for bud­ding moun­tain bike riders.

Is moun­tain bik­ing your thing? These pur­pose-built trails are per­fect for begin­ner and inter­me­di­ate rid­ers, with a cou­ple of sec­tions that will give even the most expe­ri­enced of rid­ers a thrill. You can even take the kids for a ped­al on the pump track’ while you show of your skills on the bike jumps.

Get your friends and fam­i­ly togeth­er for a BBQ pic­nic and let the kids explore the Kites and Kestrels adven­ture play­ground. Gas BBQs are now per­mit­ted on the grassy area near the play­ground (but not on days of Total Fire bans). This excit­ing play­ground includes a fly­ing fox and climb­ing struc­tures inspired by tree-top rap­tor nests! 

If you’re look­ing for a more tran­quil escape, the trails take you through peace­ful Riv­er Red Gum lined creeks, wood­lands echo­ing with bird calls, and ridge tops with views across the Ade­laide plains.
