A tranquil place to go to get away from the hustle and bustle of modern life. The haiku on the rocks are a bonus.

A very interesting walkway parallel to the main street, lots of internationally and locally created haiku to get you thinking as you stroll along. And an excellent signage explaining the art form and origin of the walkway. Very well done.

A wonderful place to meander along reading the lovely verse on each boulder, or to sit and comtemplate by the river. Beautiful parklands.
