Tripadvisor’s approach to reviews
Before posting, each Tripadvisor review goes through an automated tracking system, which collects information, answering the following questions: how, what, where and when. If the system detects something that potentially contradicts our community guidelines, the review is not published.
When the system detects a problem, a review may be automatically rejected, sent to the reviewer for validation, or manually reviewed by our team of content specialists, who work 24/7 to maintain the quality of the reviews on our site.
Our team checks each review posted on the site disputed by our community as not meeting our community guidelines.

The day we used the reserve, it was quite windy so too cool for a picnic but the bakery was only a short walk away and provided both hot coffee and hot pies/sausage rolls etc. (Their cakes were just an "add on"!!)

Pull up in your car and admire the lush view of the greenest lawned area and wonderful River Murray.

Excellent facilities for enjoying the outdoors. Definitely bring the kids but be prepared to watch them as it is by the river.

This reserve has the docking area for both the Proud Mary and Murray Princess so it can be quite interesting. Area is beautifully maintained, seats and table and walking paths along the river.

The council keeps this area really nice with facilities and a great lawn area. Very popular with families for a picnic, swimming, ski, canoe and fishing. There is a marker with the different flood levels on a dead gum tree which is interesting.

Quite a large park next to the river. The wharf is located here as well, and steamboats are sometimes moored. A number of historical markers, and good facilities, and playgrounds as well.

Named after the PS Mary Ann, the first steam-powered vessel on the Murray-Darling launched from near Mannum on 16 February 1853, the Mary Ann Reserve is an outstanding tribute to a part of Australian transport history. It also pays tribute to the journey of Charles Sturt, and also to the tenacity of the town during the several Murray floods including the big one of 1956.

Nestled between the backs of properties that face Randell Street and the river, the park is spacious, well cared for and inviting. With a large car park and also designated bus parking, many can join the tranquillity of the setting with the mighty Murray lapping the edges of the park, the sounds of bird-life only spoilt fleetingly by the sound of a speedboat passing by. There are several fixed seats that face the river, two rotundas and a large covered area with a free public BBQ available.

Toilets are to the southern end of the park adjacent to the playgrounds. Full marks to the local community who have provided a specific playground section for disabled users. Although, this area is locked, keys are readily available at locations identified on the gate. A fully abled playground is adjacent.

On the pre-spring day we were there, several families were enjoying the sun and relaxing with picnic lunches and even a few trying their hands at fishing. Dogs are permitted in the park, but must be on a leash at all times, and, of course, cleaning up after your dog is a given with appropriate bags available within the park.

Return? Most definitely to enjoy the atmosphere, chill out and relax.

The Proud Mary and the Murray Princess both come in here and the shops are very close by to go and patronise and also the museum is worth a visit.
