Happy Valley Reservoir will open its gates to the public on Saturday the 11th of December 2021. For the first time in over 120 years, you will be able to enjoy this beautiful green open space located just 35 minutes from the city.
Amidst the amazing views, you can choose to kayak for as short or as long as you like and explore the bays and shorelines. Amenities will include launch areas, trailer parking and drop-off facilities to make it easy for you to get on the water.
You can also ride or run along the 20-kilometre trail network which traverses by the water's edge as well as through pine forest and open grassy areas. There will be a boardwalk jetty and lookout, plus picnic areas with shelters and BBQs.
So, save the date and be the very first few to escape into this unique nature experience. The concept plan can be found on their website.
Does this mean we will no longer get water supply suitable for drinking???
The Govt, spent millions of dollars on a special filtration plant to clean and make the water clean enough to use. We have a shortage of water and often have restrictions. Please !!!! we need the water to survive on. Our population is growing, we already have a shortage of water and now we may have even less.
