We stopped here on our two-night Proud Mary cruise. Loved the little town and this park was a lovely green space for families to enjoy. Green and right on the river. Playground for the children. Perfect for a relaxing picnic.

No trip to Mannum is complete without a visit to this lovely reserve. River views, lush green lawn, shady River Red Gums, free bbqs, playground, historic features of interest and significance. Walk to local shops. Ample parking. One hour from Adelaide. Recommended.
