On a dry February a good place for a walk away from all the tourists and shoppers. Paths are well maintained and views are scenic.

I take my little boy on walks along the river regularly. The paths are well maintained, though sometimes there is sewerage in the river which stinks

A Sunday morning walk along the river was very refreshing, and the offer of a coffee and ice cream just set the top on it. There is rowing to watch and boat tours to take.
