Across the precinct – Happy Valley Reservoir

Happy Valley Reservoir spans an area of 188 hectares in Adelaide’s southern suburbs and is set to become part of the Glenthorne National Park precinct.

The inclusion of this reservoir in the precinct offers an incredible opportunity to connect up vast areas of recreational and green space for people to use and enjoy in Adelaide’s southern suburbs.

The State Government plans to open the reservoir to the public by the end of 2021 as part of its commitment to open reservoirs for recreation and enjoyment.

It’s anticipated that visitors will be able to enjoy water-based activities like kayaking and fishing at the reservoir as well as other land-based activities.

The reservoir also provides important habitat for many special plants and animals that will continue to be conserved as part of the future management of reservoir reserve access.

You can share your views on the types of activities you would like to see in Happy Valley Reservoir by visiting the SA Water website.
