Across the precinct – Happy Valley Reservoir

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.
