On your list of things to do, add a stroll or jog along the riverside walk.
The riverside walk is a great place to stop and revive, to view the river scenery, to listen to the wonderful bird life and see the sunrise& sunset.
It's also a great spot to meet friends and gather away from home. Children's play grounds, seating choices, picnic tables and BBQ's are scattered along the riverside park for your enjoyment. Access points to the cement footpath are along The Terrace.

Another to do activity is the Sandytown River Cruise - a wonderful refresher out on the water
