Things to do
Tarturninthi is adjacent to Trowbridge Avenue Reserve.
Although situated next to a busy road, it only takes a few steps for the calming effect of this site to take hold. Ducks regularly congregate in the pond and the winding overflow river has bridges should it get full on a stormy day.
There are a seats through the reserve and various pathways connecting across.
The wetland mitigates flooding in the area, acting as a storm-water retention basin. Find out more about our commitment to being a Water Sensitive City on our Water management page.
In April 1997 these new wetlands were named Tartonendi (now Tarturninthi) which is a Kaurna word meaning "transforming the land into wetlands".
