The park is absolutely beautiful. Well kept and maintained. The staff is friendly. Perfect for a weekend picnic or to have your children run around. The water fall and dam is so cool looking and picturesque.

Not a long walk. If no issues with walking it should take 10mins or so to get to the top. There is a park below, which you can park at or there in another access Rd. that you can park at the top of the dam and walk across.
