The creek is not a natural watercourse but an artificial drainage channel that was built in 1917 to channel water away from the Greenhill Road - Fullarton Road intersection, and through the South Park Lands.
Over a century, the condition of the Creek significantly deteriorated. The Adelaide City Council has planned for the rehabilitation of this creek into a significant wetlands environment. Plans for this redevelopment include interpretive and education facilities, boardwalks and a range of nature play and recreation opportunities. Work on this rehabilitation began in July 2017 in the nearby Park 18.
Our walk is almost finished. From this point look for a bitumen path that runs through the urban woodland.
