not too far away from my home and nice place for open area activities. It is a good choice to have a drink or some sweet at the cafe shop.

Best steak sandwich we've ever had. We go there often just for lunch. Amazing views from the cafe and a nice walk along the dam wall although that can get hot in the middle of the day.
