  • Island within the island. Wonderful walk/stroll to and from Tamar island on a wooden pathway while enjoying the wind of the gorgeous Tamar river and peaceful scenery of various birds. Recommend for everyone!

The greenery is soothing to the nature lover and the paths are well designed and clearly designated for ease of access. I personally found the ducks and fauna bliss to observe. Great area for photos with the tall grass surrounding for a picturesque selfie all around.
  • Always a good walk... Almost completely on broadwalk. A mere
