Looks good and on the river. Free swimming but exercise caution. There is a lot of chlorine in the pool and many have suffered with eye and ear aches from swimming in here. Beautiful parklike surroundings with free barbeques. Has security because of problems with out of control kids.

A wonderful location for the family to enjoy a swim in the pool or to walk along or ride along the paths along the rivers. A wonderful area to relax.

The pools were fabulous I only wish it were sunnier. Even in light rain we enjoyed walking the long river walk (stroller friendly) but a lack of bathrooms and larger play structures was disappointing.

Hats off to the developers of this great precinct (was it the city council?). It offers scenery, walks, activities etc and combines it with a residential area and a community centre.

In the midst of stately trees is a swimming complex and peaceful and luxurious units give scenic views of the Ross River. Walkways lead to the Weir crossing.

What a lovely garden and river walk area with areas for children to play. Very relaxing being by the water and going for a walk. A small gallery to visit very well done for a small town.
