Enjoy, explore, preserve Little Para Reservoir Reserve

Little Para Reservoir is South Australia’s youngest reservoir, situated north of Adelaide alongside the suburbs of Greenwith and Golden Grove, providing an opportunity for adventure, family fun and environmental preservation.

This beautiful natural reserve offers almost four kilometres of trails with two picnic areas, making it a welcome stop for local bike riders, runners and walkers. A scenic lookout provides the perfect way to relax and take in the reservoir and dam wall.

The facilities at Little Para Reservoir Reserve are designed to add value for the local community, building on existing recreational opportunities in adjoining public land and nearby green spaces..

While people from other areas are welcome to enjoy the low-key facilities at Little Para, we encourage you instead to visit other nearby reservoirs reserves that cater for higher visitor numbers and offer a greater range of activities, such as Hope Valley Reservoir Reserve, and the Warren and South Para Reservoirs reserves which form part of the Southern Barossa Reservoirs network .

Open 7.30am - 5pm (standard time), 7.30am - 8pm (daylight saving time). Closed on Total Fire Ban Days and for operational activity (gates will be closed).
