The National Parks and Wildlife Service (NPWS) has a series of activities and events on offer in the Northern Mount Lofty Ranges as part of its Park of the Month program for May.

Senior Ranger at Para Wirra for NPWS, Tammy Leggett said Park of the Month activities would be held in the following parks: Anstey Hill Recreation Park; Cobbler Creek Recreation Park; Morialta Conservation Park; and Para Wirra Conservation Park, with events either free or offered at a greatly reduced cost.

Ms Leggett said the group of parks was located within 45 minutes’ drive of the Adelaide CBD and all offered stunning, natural bushland perfect for bushwalking, camping, mountain biking and picnics.

“May is a great time to get out in parks and experience the changing of the seasons as we move into winter,” she said.

The Senior Ranger said Park of the Month events and activities included Hiking Skills with Walking SA in Anstey Hill Recreation Park; Mountain bike skills sessions for kids in Cobbler Creek Recreation Park; Guided family nature walks with Nature Play SA in Morialta Conservation Park; and Forest bathing and wellness walk in Para Wirra Conservation Park.
