nice trails
Mar 2020
nice walking trails near river banks, much greenery, much missing connection to other-side of the river, may be some information how to reach and cross the bridge will be useful, spent almost an hour trying to find way out,

Pathetic stinking foul Bremer River
Mar 2019 • Friends
This place is guaranteed to give you a coffin just smelling the foul river. There is a River Fire FESTIVAL next week... OLOLOL i will not hire a helicopter to view it. It will be too close to the stench. I counted 26 Coles / Woolies trollys in the mus and could see from where i was standing. The place is an Environment disaster. There should be massive signs put up by the City New Administrator [Enter at your own risk].. I bought a coffe up in the Riverstink Coffee Club. I sat outside for three minutes. The wind blew the wrong way, i moved inside. The shopping centre local name is RIVERSTINK Mr Administrator and BOTH STATE AND THE FEDERAL MEMBERS.

Perfect place for a picnic
Feb 2019 • Couples
Our friends took us here for a family picnic, one warm February evening. It is a beautiful park and waterway, and we saw lots of local birds including pelicans and ibis. There are multiple covered dining areas, all featuring free gas barbecues. It was a lovely picnic in a lovely place.

Great spot for a walk

Nice place for a walk beside the river. Park was nice too. Loads of feral kids at the park but I guess it is a popular place.

Great place to walk the dog or catch a Pokemon
Jun 2018 • Couples
My partner and I went for a walk along the River Heart Parklands with our dog. Yes the river is brown, not much you can do about that. The area was nicely landscaped with interesting art installations, I guess that's what you would call the 3 small children playing by a pond. A couple of the trails led to nowhere and we had to backtrack. Toward the end of the walk there were 40 or 50 adults, teenagers and children with phones out, searching for Pokémon. There were lots of areas with dog water, important to us. There are BBQ's and an amazing childrens play area. The only down side was that despite all of the signage not to, people were on bikes and skateboards, making it sometimes dangerous. But all in all definitely worth a wander.

Nice try no cigar
Jan 2017 • Couples
The idea of a walkway along the river is brilliant, unfortunately the river is a bad shade of brown. It looks as if someone had a good idea but not enough money; every time it floods, the park goes under and the planners haven't worked out that there needs to be another pathway above the flood line.

Not bad

Walkway well kept, water / park area is popular with families, clean bathroom facilities, just don't look at the muddy river.

Visit Riverstink Coffee shops and look down on the edifice
May 2017 • Friends
The place is known to locals as Riverstink. The Bremer River is listed as a -D [That is minus D] FOR OBVIOUS REASONS.
I asked the local Council member about it. she said it's the State Govt. Problem. He said its the Federal Govt problem. The number of Woolies trollies over the walk bridge ... i counted 10 on the banks. What is in the silt and mud?. The place is revolting in the evening to do coffee. It's very poor. Nobody seems interested in the poor river. The wild life have left.
