Mount Bold and Little Para Reservoirs – Opening This Year

A reservoir in Adelaide’s north-eastern suburbs and South Australia’s largest reservoir in the Adelaide Hills will be the next two to be open for recreational access.

Mount Bold and Little Para reservoir reserves will both be open for you to explore by the end of the year, offering land-based recreational activities such as hiking and family picnics. The introduction of recreational access will see new walking trails with a range of loops and terrains, new lookouts with stunning views over the reservoirs, along with car parks, toilets and facilities for picnicking.

Little Para Reservoir:

Little Para will be accessed through Greenwith and provide residents of the north-eastern suburbs with a new space for daily exercise and introduce visitors to the region’s natural beauty.

Construction works will soon get underway and include establishing a trail network and car park, installing fencing and signage, planting native vegetation, and ensuring the sustained protection of important drinking water assets.

Mount Bold Reservoir:

Mount Bold Reservoir’s opening will see a more than 12-kilometre trail network established for hiking, running and walking, a new lookout and viewing platform with views across the dam wall and Mount Lofty Ranges, and a new car park, toilets and facilities for picnicking.

Unlocking access to the southern section of the reserve enables the new trails to connect with the Kidman and Heysen walking trails, along with the Onkaparinga National Park and Willunga Basin Trail, as well as capturing views over the reservoir and the reserve’s diverse terrain – offering a leisurely stroll, through to a more rigorous hiking experience.

Happy Valley Reservoir Reserve is also opening up in December. Read more about it HERE
