During 2013, hundreds of local residents have been involved in upgrading the Smith Creek Trail into a more family friendly space.
Children at local primary schools have been involved in designing trail maps, artwork for the footpaths and trail markers along the trail. The trail goes from Anderson Walk near the train station and winds its way for about 3km into Stebonheath Park. The majority of the trail is a bitumen surface which is perfect for children and families to ride and walk. The trail maps at either end of the trail show the art work and points of interest along the journey. The new trail bollards mark every 200m along the trail and installations such as bins and way finding signage are in response to community needs expressed through the consultation process.
The new trail was launched in October with many local families participating in a fun walk or ride along a section of the trail. Check out the short video below showing how the trail has been upgraded and hear from children and families who have been involved.

The Smith Creek Trail improvement project is a collaboration between the City of Playford, Communities for Children Plus, OPAL and Renewal SA.
