I went there twice, once at night and the other time in the afternoon. Both of these times were great as the night scene was spectacular with the Oval lights and the Torrents being lighted up. However, the afternoon scenery is not to be missed too and I strongly suggest to go just before sunset. It's a beautiful place to... More

The River Torrens is a beautiful ,slow flowing small river { stream } visitors and locals are impressed to see. For the more athletic, there are plenty of walking tracks to take in more of the scenery . Even a picnic by the waters edge is nice .

Great for a run or walk. It's definitely peaceful. It gets you out of the hustle bustle of the city for a minute & it is filled with pretty scenery.

Loved the well planned and well thought tracks. You can travel all the way in to the city, on foot or by bike and feel safe every step of the way. Some lovely little spots to stop for a rest and a very peaceful journey overall.

Can't beat a beautiful ride along the linear trail! When the water is flowing, it's so pretty and refreshing. The only point of criticism I would note is that dogs are often loose and have come off my bike due to dog running out in front of me. The trail itself is very peaceful and picturesque. I would say it's... More

Linear Park runs all through the Adelaide Metropolitan area from the Northern Suburbs through to the sea at Henley Beach, following the course of the River Torrens. It is a wide strip of parkland,with attractive lawned areas and many native gumtrees, wattles, etc, teeming with ducks and birds and makes you feel that you are in a (very manicured!) piece... More

Follow the trail all the way from the city along the river to Henley Beach for ice cream or a bite to eat in the square. The trail has a few lumpy bits but all up pretty good. Keep an eye out for pedestrians who jump right….

Rent a bike and spend the day at the Linear Park Trail. Extending your ride to Henley Beach is a great add-on.
