Dam Delights at Wynn Vale
If you have a spare hour or two, go for a nice walk along this 6.3km stretch of path. The path is quite wide with enough room for everyone. The boardwalk is excellent, just to get you out on the water a bit more.
The dam was originally built in 1962 by winemakers, S Wynn & Company, as they needed water for their vineyards. As the vineyards left and the houses moved in, it now stores the rainwater. In 2009 a storm water filtration system was put there.
We have a lot of forward-thinking people here in South Australia with our water storage. It was the first of its kind in Australia. We should be very proud of our wetlands and water usage around the parks and gardens in Adelaide. We do a good job.
You can park right next to the Dam and just spend time there. There are houses across the road. There are also horses kept along the trail on the east side of the dam. Children love to walk along the dirt path and see the horses.
