River Torrens Linear Park Path

Stretching almost 47 kilometres from the hills to the coast, the River Torrens Linear Park is a popular spot for walking, running and cycling.

The River Torrens Linear Park is one of Adelaide’s most distinctive recreation spaces. In our City, the River Torrens Linear Park extends from Felixstow Reserve to Hackney.

Using the shared path:

  • use the shared path like you would a road—stick to the left and overtake on the right
  • if you’re walking a dog, keep them on a short leash on the path
  • if you’re cycling, don’t go too fast and keep a safe distance between yourself and any pedestrians you encounter, especially children and animals. Make sure your bike has a bell so you can alert others that you're coming

Please note: Dogs must be kept on a leash on all parts of the River Torrens Linear Park path in the City of Norwood Payneham & St Peters. If you’d like to let your dog off-leash, you can visit one of our ten off-leash parks or reserves

Upgraded River Torrens Linear Park path

In 2019, the Council enhanced the 2.59 kilometres stretch of path that extends from Felixstow Reserve to Ninth Avenue and Battams Road, St Peters. The pathway is now more appealing for all visitors to the park. 

The path has been aligned around a number of large gum trees, so that they can be preserved and enjoyed by generations to come. The project was funded by the Australian Government as part of the Roads to Recovery Program.

The upgrade was completed in March 2020.
