Sturt River Linear Park

In 2008, a concept plan for the Sturt River Linear Park, Coromandel Valley section was developed by the Cities of Onkaparinga and Mitcham to deliver the trail from Frank Smith Park to Horner’s Bridge.

The Sturt River Linear Park aims to create a continuous public open space link from the Patawalonga Basin in Glenelg North to Frank Smith Park in Coromandel Valley. The Sturt River Linear Park is a key component of Adelaide’s Metropolitan Open Space System providing a strategic link in the open space network from the hills to the coast.

Stage 3 

Stage 3 of the Sturt River Linear Park development will link the recently completed section of trail from the Institute Building on Main Road to Horner’s Bridge, Coromandel Valley. This section will connect the trail to previously completed sections of trail that lead to Frank Smith Park.

This project is the result of considerable planning and community engagement completed over recent years. Construction of this section of the trail is subject to securing funding and is likely to require a staged approach.
