Across the precinct: New trails for O’Halloran Hill Recreation Park
The Glenthorne precinct will stretch far beyond the Glenthorne property. Get to know the other parks and parcels of land that will form part of this exciting network of natural spaces.
Mountain-biking is a great way to explore South Australia’s national parks and the good news is the trail network just got bigger with 13km of new trails added to O’Halloran Hill Recreation Park.
O’Halloran Hill Recreation Park will become part of the Glenthorne precinct and is well-known in the Adelaide mountain bike community for its extensive network of trails that cater for beginners right through to advanced riders.
The park’s new trails have some unique names including Grom Flow, which is perfect for kids and beginner riders, Sylvanian Families, which is a great way to enjoy a ride with a forest backdrop, and Haarsma’s Vision, which is named after Pete Haarsma, a late Friends of O’Halloran Hill Recreation Park member who contributed much of his time to the trails in the park.
Prefer to explore the park with your feet firmly on the ground? These new trails are ‘shared-use’, which means walkers and runners can also enjoy them.
