Beefacres Reserve

Fitness and fun for the whole family
On Pitwater Drive, Windsor Gardens, Beefacres Reserve (beside the Beefacres Community Hall) is a very pleasant park beside the Torrens Linear Park.

Linear Park


With plenty of off-road parking and lots of natural shade, it is an easy place to relax in. There are benches and water fountains - including dog fountains - and the sounds of nature are everywhere. As is the sound of the main road, but there is a river between it and the park, so there is no danger of children running onto it. Speaking of dogs, one of the very few downsides of the park seems to be the dog owners. Despite numerous signs reminding people that dogs should be on leashes, every time we've been there we've encountered dogs allowed to run loose. A small thing, but it does detract from the area.

There is a playground in a fenced off area that is colourful and full of activity. However, our 7 year old found it a little dull (the 5 year old loved it).

There is also a fitness circuit with 7 activities to do, recommended for people aged 12 years and older. Which means that there may be only a little for people aged between 8 and 12 to do on the equipment.

Fitness Equipment


A track runs through the reserve, joining up with the Linear Park walking track, making it a good starting point for a walk of whatever length you desire along the Torrens or the O-Bahn track. The natural surrounds have been well-maintained, making this walk one of the more pleasant in metropolitan Adelaide.

There is also an electric barbecue and picnic tables. Public toilets are only available in the Community Hall, but keys for this can be hired if you wish to have a function at the reserve.

Barbecue Area


So, in all, a pleasant area, and a decent site to have a social gathering or party.
