This is a great esplanade, its one of the longest I've seen and well maintained pathways and seating areas along the way. Many people using it on a Saturday morning, especially joggers.

Well looked after pathway with plenty of stops along the way to keep the young ones entertained. Beautiful parks and playgrounds. The kids rode for many kilometers all the way to the Urangan Pier on their scooters. Great time.
