Very enjoyable stroll and relaxing, worth finding as it's just behind the swimming pool, you can see the source of the blue that colours the lake

A large area of marshland around the springs that produced water for the local sugar refinery, within easy walking distance of the town centre. With lakes and good gravel paths this is very easy to both visit and get around. With a wealth of wildlife...More
