Well maintained walk along the waterfront. Many choices in restaurants and bars. The fresh flowers and fountains were a plus. I also enjoyed the art piece.

I loved it here. Great for a family walk, kids played in water on the way down to harbour, beautiful flowers, just a great peaceful walk. We sat and had a drink in one of the bars then went for supper at farmers fishers bakery.
