During a visit to Adelaide for work that kept in me in town over the weekend, I headed to the River Torrens Park for exercise. I really enjoyed it--a great running path along the river, with lots of pretty scenery of Adelaide city along the way. It was a nice mix of nature and development. The trail was in great... More

Thoroughly enjoyed the bike ride from West Beach into the city. It is so beautiful it is hard to believe you are riding through a large city. It is a wonderful place for all ages to walk, ride, picnic or play. The river looked in good heart and the trees and plantings are fantastic. I look forward to riding the... More

Definitely one for the sportspeople, but also enjoyable for the families with children. This trail takes you from the hills to the beach, but most people probably come in at the city section. This shared trail is very well maintained, and picturesque. I really appreciated the installation of water fountains in the stretch I ran along. The trail is also... More

A friend and I parked the car and walked along Linear Park for over an hour. Good walking paths and lovely scenery and plenty of shade.

Was in Adelaide for four nights and used this trail every morning for a walk. When the sun is out it was a cool place out of the heat, there was a cold wind on two of the days and once down next to the river you missed the wind. If come back to Adelaide would love to do the... More

We rented a place just around the corner. We used the trail to walk after our meals in the mornings and in the evenings for a week. Next time we will rent bicycles.

We walked the whole length of the linear park from hills to sea several years ago – about 20 km as the crow flies, but about 30 km to walk! The sealed trails follow the River Torrens, mostly on both sides of the river, and are designed for bicycles and pedestrians. For part of the trail, the O-Bahn tracks follows... More

Even my teenagers (early and late teens) love to take a bike ride along the linear trail. We particularly love the area between Walkerville and Adelaide. Great to take the bikes out and not too hilly for those of us not used to riding. It is also wonderful to find an off leash area for the dog on the oval... More
