Beautiful stroll along the river bank at anytime is a breath of fresh air in a city full of vechicles. The wildlife on and in the river is just great to see.

The most interesting thing about this river is the number of foot bridges which criss-cross the river. These are often decorated with flowers and add to the beauty of this lovely town.
