Sturt River Linear Park Trail
Starting from Pine Avenue near the intersection with Willoughby Avenue, Glenelg North, this walk takes you to the Warriparinga Wetlands near the Southern Expressway via the Sturt River Linear Park Trail. The Sturt River Linear Park is a continuous open public space along the Sturt River, between Glenelg North and Coromandel Valley, featuring an excellent shared-use bitumen pathway that runs from Pine Avenue, Glenelg North, to Main South Road, Bedford Park. Named after Charles Sturt --a British explorer of Australia-- the trail meanders along the river, passing many reserves, parks, playgrounds and historic sites, including former market gardens, with interpretive signs providing historical, cultural and environmental information. Towards the end, the trail passes through the Warriparinga Wetlands, a large open space used for recreation and education, home to the Living Kaurna Cultural Centre, containing walking trails, boardwalks, ponds, native vegetation and diverse birdlife. This walk consists of wide, shared-use bitumen pathways, with some busy road crossings, suitable for walkers and cyclists of all fitness levels, as well as prams and wheelchairs. Let us begin by acknowledging the Traditional Custodians of the land on which we travel today, and pay our respects to their Elders past and present.
