Denis Morrissey Park

Denis Morrissey Park has something for everyone – play equipment, walking trail, large open space, a creek to explore and a fabulous dog park for the family hound to have a play too.

Located in Hectorville, this area is part of the Torrens Catchment and Fourth Creek Trail. Clean and well maintained, there is plenty of space to take a picnic lunch and a few ball games and spend the afternoon, or just drop by for a quick turn on the playground.  There are public toilets located at the entrance and a car park.

Exploring Fourth Creek

Fourth Creek runs through Denis Morrissey Park creating a fun and interesting place to investigate – perfect for splashing around after a little rain or for exploring during the drier months.

Once you cross over the first bridge, follow the path, over another bridge and head down along the walking trail.
