Emerald Lake Park
This is Emerald Lake Park. Quite a tranquil and extensive picnic area with many walking tracks and interesting spots to check-out. We had a family day here and of course the customary long walk after a picnic lunch. I realised that as a kid my parents had brought me here over forty-five years ago and we swam in a concrete pools a part of the whole complex. These days the swimming areas are all closed and in chronic disrepair. Insurances have killed any sort of commercial venture here and now it is strictly picnics and walks only. Still it was a great family day and though the extended walk didn't thrill me in theory it didn't kill me in practice.
