I went down here on a Sunday morning and it was a beautiful day for a run in the park. Here you can also rent pedal boats, take a Popeye Tour of the River Torrens, or see the various rowing clubs practicing in the river.

We were staying with family in Athelstone just across the road from the Linear Park Trail which basically follows the Torrens River from the gorge down to the sea. We walked the top part of the trail up to the gorge. I must admit I was very impressed with what the local council has achieved ... wide concrete paths in... More

Took a walk down to the river and walked along for some distance and there were plenty of things to see, although it was only 7am there were a few places open to get a coffee.

Escaping to roam the river banks on the free Council supplied bikes a surprising treat in the heart of the city. No special riding skill required as the path had plenty of room for both bikes and walkers. Interesting features along the way, with local councils maintaining picnic spots with BBQs. Only got lost a few times when path stopped... More

Not often does this council gets anything right. At least they did not make a mess of this natural beauty. Obviously the previous members of the council had more say in the way the trail evolved. It is indeed a delight to walk or ride down this beautiful part of Adelaide. Highly recommended.

I visited Adelaide for 4 days and saw/visited this river twice. The first time was when I was walking from the Central Train Station, to the Casino and to the areas where they have the theaters/auditoriums for live performances. There was a short bridge that I had to cross. The second time was during my walk from the Botanic Gardens,... More

We mainly cycled this using the free bike hire. I highly recommend cycling this path and others around Adelaide- it was a great way to see the city and surrounds.

A very clean and highly maintained park. If you are looking for a peaceful place, this is it. Bring a coffee or novel or simply sit on the grass to enjoy the nature's wonder. Or just roll on the grass for sometime.. Amazing feeling ever! Beautiful place not to be missed!

We took advantage of the free bikes available in Adelaide and cycled the city circuit section of the Torrens Linear Trail. We were able to cycle both sides of the Torrens River past the Adelaide Oval, Torrens Weir, Adelaide Zoo and under the waterfall! The path is bitumen all the way and easy going. We spent 2 days in Adelaide... More
