Little Para Reservoir Reserve opening in 2021
A hidden gem in Adelaide's north-eastern suburbs, Little Para will be one of the next reservoir reserves to open for recreational access in 2021.
Little Para will be accessed through Greenwith and provide local residents and sightseers with a new space for daily exercise, and introduce visitors to the region’s natural beauty.
There will be a range of land-based activities on offer, including bike riding, walking, running and picnicking, as well as a new lookout with picturesque views over the reservoir and a meandering trail through its natural landscape.
Construction works will soon get underway and include establishing a trail network and car park, installing fencing and signage, planting native vegetation, and ensuring the sustained protection of important drinking water assets.
Commissioned in 1979 with a water capacity of 20.9 billion litres, Little Para Reservoir supplies SA Water’s nearby water treatment plant, which provides drinking water to customers in Hillbank and Para Hills, and as far west as Burton.
