Start: The corner of Harper Ave and Fendalton Road.
Finish: The corner of Harper Ave and Park Terrace.
Time: 20 minutes one way.
Dogs: On leash only.
Access: Suitable for wheelchairs and strollers.
Starting at the corner of Harper Ave and Fendalton Road, follow the meandering river downstream and enjoy a scenery that changes dramatically depending on the season.
Visit in autumn to see golden leaves drift lazily from trees and return in spring for the incredible sight of daffodils and bluebells sprinkled across the grass as far as the eye can see.
For something a little different, detour through Millbrook Reserve via the historic Helmores Lane Bridge and re-join the park by crossing back over the footbridge on Carlton Mill Road.
