Walking along the River Torrens was very peaceful, even though there was plenty of activity; people sitting, walking and many with boats, as shown in my photo.

The sections around the CBD are very nice to walk along. Take your bike along the track all the way to sea and you can find a coastal bike track that goes all the way along the metropolitan coast which has some great beaches. You can hire bikes in the CBD or use the free ones.

Riding the Linear park trail can be a great day out or a good way to commute to work without the traffic. There is parks, playgrounds, kiosks and public toilets all accessible along the trail. It's mostly level and suitable for all riders or walkers. If only the water was kept cleaner.

While in Adelaide I included a 35kms ride to Henley beach using the trail, what an amazing trail. The path was good the parks while on the path, then arriving at the beach, truly amazing.

I went running in the park from Flinders Park area towards the city and also towards the beach. Both directions have great views and are lovely along the river. Towards the beach is slightly flatter though!

Just a lovely long walk by the river,relaxing,people strolling with kids,runners,cyclists. River and surroundings were in springtime bloom and it was a lovely day to show off all its beauty. Kept nice and clean and safe,little bit of the river was needing a clean but didn't spoil things.Also nice safe surroundings.

On a fine less windy day it would be great to walk or cycle along this trail but sadly it was very blustery so just a quick walk.
