R&R at reservoir reserves

Expanding recreation space for South Australians by opening reservoir reserves across the state for complimentary, site-suitable recreational use and enjoyment is a state government priority.

A multi-agency taskforce, appointed by the Minister for Environment and Water, is overseeing the opening of the areas surrounding Happy Valley Reservoir – as part of the new Glenthorne National Park – the Barossa Reservoir plus Myponga, South Para, Warren and Hope Valley. Public access is also being considered for reservoir sites in the state’s mid-north, on Kangaroo Island and the Eyre Peninsula.

Myponga Reservoir Reserve opened in April 2019, and activities and access were expanded at Warren and Bundaleer Reservoir Reserves in October 2019.

Enjoying outdoor activities at reservoir reserves will be a great way to spend time with family and friends. As we plan for the community to access these areas, we want to hear from you and work with you. Your feedback will help us get the balance right between outdoor fun and the reliable supply of drinking water for South Australians. You're invited to join the conversation by taking the 2-minute survey below.
