Its just a place to go and relax away from the noise of city buzz. The water is very nice & cooling. Bit difficult if u have older ppl. There are steps to climb, rocks to cross. Overall it's nice.

Sorry to say that the canopy walk has been closed since 30th June 2017. FRIM has decided to close it once and for all to allow the supporting trees to heal and regenerate.
