SA Police, SAPOL Road Safety Centre at Thebarton Police Barracks just near the Bonython Park kiosk and playground area is a fantastic spot for young riders to bring their own bike/scooter and helmet and practice their riding skills in a safe environment. The mock roadway helps children to become familiar with correct road signage, pedestrian safety and road rules.

The roadway includes:

  • an intersection with traffic lights
  • pedestrian crossings
  • a roundabout
  • traffic signs.

Available for community use on weekends and after 2.30 pm on weekdays (including school holidays). If the ‘DO NOT ENTER’ signs are up, please do not use the mock roadway as it is booked for a SAPOL session. Call  8207 4668 to check availability. The traffic lights operate seven days a week between 8.00 am and 6.00 pm and 8.00 am and 8.00 pm during daylight saving.

It is available free of charge but you need to bring your own bike or scooter and safety equipment.

Once the kids tire of the safety centre, they can ride past the Police horses (signs indicate you need to take care and don’t feed or pat them) and over to the awesome Bonython Park Playground – always a winner with its nature based play areas and cool new equipment.

Please note that the nearest toilets are located a few hundred metres away – out the Northern gate and at the edge of the oval towards the Bonython Park playground. Also, the mock traffic lights are not in operation after hours and cannot be turned on using the phone number on the control box. If the ‘DO NOT ENTER’ signs are up, please do not use the mock roadway as it is booked for a session. Call 8207 4668 to check availability.

  • The Bower Road Bike Park is located at the Aquatic Reserve In West Lakes Shores on the corner of Old Port Road and Bower Road.  We found it particularly good for advanced riders as we haven’t seen many other bike parks of this level in SA. If you want something to compare it against and you’re familiar with the track off Greenhill/Unley roads in the CBD then this Bower Road Bike Park is more suited to riders of the CBD’s intermediate and (often closed) advanced tracks. The location has been used as a BMX track, however over the last decade the track has not had the attention it received in years gone by. In 2013 a group of local residents school groups and the Charles Sturt Council got together to start discussing ways to improve the park and redevelop it to provide a fully functioning bike park that was as good as the facilities being developed overseas and in other parts of Australia. Through the efforts of volunteers in collaboration with the council the park currently has a kids BMX track, an advanced BMX track, Dirt Jumps and a Pump Track. Our confident 5-6 year old bike riders are comfortable…
