About the Walking Routes
Take a stroll through the wetlands and trails at Springbank Boulevard Reserve.
We’ve detailed two possible walking routes you could choose from:
Loop around the southern wetlands (marked in red)
The loop is 1.6km long and a 20 minute stroll.
The southern wetlands are a re-created wetland catchment and for water quality improvement. It’s teeming with birdlife – there are plenty of ducks and other waterfowl.
The gravel paths are well maintained and make for an easy 20 minute stroll. The paved and gravel paths are suitable for wheels, including kids bikes, prams and wheelchair users (the paved paths are alongside the road sections).
There is a bbq and picnic area adjacent to an undercover children’s playground and exercise equipment on Springbank Boulevard.
Loop around the northern lake (marked in blue)
The loop by itself is 2.3km long and a 30 minute stroll. Combining both loops is a 3.1km long 45-t0 minute stroll.
Extend your walk around the southern wetlands by walking along the waterway to the entrance of Springbank Waters estate on Waterloo Corner Road. Here there is an ornamental lake with fountains and another smaller playground.
If you get sick of looking at the wetlands you can look at the lovely houses on the edge of the park. About half of the paths are paved as they follow the road. There are plenty of ducks and other waterfowl, and lots of benches to sit and watch from.
If you are just walking the northern loop, you can start from almost anywhere along Springbank Boulevard where it is beside the waterway.
The walk is accessible by Adelaide Metro bus, from bus stop 63A on Springbank Boulevard.
