“Great Place for a break & time out”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 29, 2014

We took our kids here for a bike ride along the footpath, was awesum, We stopped at the sculptures along the way. When we got back, kids had a play on the awesum playground with soo many features. Also the shops there are great as well.

“watch the people go by”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 22, 2014

Excellent waterfront with shops and cafes where you can watch the people, boats and world go by. Lovely walk along the front and fudge cake to die for.
