Exploring the beautiful surrounds of Adelaide's reservoirs
Reservoir reserves around Adelaide have much to offer. Of course, the main purpose of reservoirs is still to supply water to South Australians, but many of its reserves are now also open for public access. Various tailored activities have been introduced in recent times to help people explore these beautiful surrounds.

Hope Valley Reservoir Reserve

As the first metropolitan reservoir reserve to be made accessible to the general public, Hope Valley Reservoir Reserve provides a total of almost five kilometres of walking and cycling trails. This includes the 800-metre dam wall from where you can get a great view across the water to the hills. There are also workout stations for exercise lovers to complement their run and a nature playground to ensure the little ones have a fun day out.

South Para Reservoir Reserve

Home to a range of adventure activities is South Para Reservoir Reserve at Williamstown. Outdoor enthusiasts can experience the surrounds with their kayaks and canoes. There are quite a number of suggested routes for you to choose from, whether you're after a full day adventure or just a short meander.

Warren Reservoir Reserve

Last but not least, a vantage point at Warren Reservoir Reserve allows you to view the valve house, dam wall and reservoir which were successfully constructed during World War I even though many workers were given a leave of absence. And, as a historic cache of information, the valve house has a time capsule cast into its door lintel for the future.

Reservoirs almost everywhere offer good recreational activities, even if it only a walk across a dam wall, that in itself is a rewarding experience.
