Lake needs cleaned up. A good easy walk around with plenty of bench seats to relax on. A 30min walk around for a old fella. Depending on the time and season some good photo ops. Alot of bird life.

I do this walk regularly and enjoy each time. Some times stopping for coffee but not always....greatt coffee though. Park at the far sideof the lake then you can stop half way for the kids to have a play at the awesome play ground and coffee and then carry on walking.
