This is a very pleasant recreational area with an oval adjacent to the linear park and a billabong. It is kept generally in good condition and has plenty of shady trees. However your experience will be spoiled by irresponsible dog owners who have little or no control of their dogs. As a result packs of dogs run around where ever... More

We have been staying at Levi Caravan park over Christmas and it has been an excellent central place to access everything that Adelaide has to offer. The staff are friendly and helpful. The cabins and grounds are well looked after. Definitely worth staying at if you have 4 or more people and are staying in Adelaide.

This park is very popular with dog lovers. I suggest you go here in the evening to watch the frockling pooches

The billabong is a nice place to visit whilst out walking, noticed a few cranes there last week. Can get a little 'stinky' towards the end of summer until fresh rains flush it out. A great improvement to the Linear Park walk/area.

Great for bird watchers we saw many species from sparrows up to big black swans. Wonderful on a sunny day as there are plenty of trees for shade.

The Billabong has been revitalised and replanted and it provides a sanctuary, of sorts, for birdlife. Take your field glasses. It is a pleasant and peaceful place to walk and sit - close to an extensive riverside walk, a BBQ area and an oval for the children to play.
