This south­ern sub­urbs park was once cleared and for more than 90 years the area was used for graz­ing. Today, the shade from the regen­er­at­ed grey box euca­lypts and riv­er red gums pro­vides the per­fect spot for a pic­nic. The blue­stone quar­ry in the park once sup­plied raw mate­ri­als for many of Ade­laide’s old­er build­ings and is still vis­i­ble today. Stun­ning views of the city, hills face and coast­line can be seen while fol­low­ing the var­i­ous fire access trails with in the Park

Check out the 18 kms of Moun­tain Bike trails. The trails use the steep­er parts of the park to pro­vide some great down­hill options, with trails rang­ing from easy through to inter­me­di­ate and advanced.
