Walking SA award winner 2018, District Council of Cleve

The District Council of Cleve has identified the increasing number of South Australians undertaking physical activity for exercise and leisure within their strategic plans. The Council deemed it important to develop and construct infrastructure that enables its residents and visitors to participate in structured and unstructured recreation such as walking.

The Yeldulknie Weir Trail is a shared-use trail suitable for walkers, cyclists, runners, and is accessible to people with mobility issues, including the use of wheelchairs and gophers. The trail is 5km one-way, beginning in Cleve and heading out to Yeldulknie Weir & Reservoir, where there are a further two loop trails.

Since the development of the Yeldulknie Weir Trail families and the elderly have made use of the trail, as well as some local gym members, a local walking group, the soon to be launched local parkrun and the Cleve Sporting Bodies Colour Trail event to be held on 13 October 2018.

These events, activities and local groups assist in the promotion of walking, the Yeldulknie Weir Trail and the Cleve District.
