Swingbridge was cool, picnic area is dangerous for kids (old vehicle there), very aggressive sandflies, nice lady there.

Not too expensive for $10. The walk is nice, but you do not get the feeling when there as too many people.

It was great fun, also for kids (aged 5 and 8 years) walking the bridge. The short walk on the other side was super too. Only minus is the sandflies.

Fun to do and nice to see. It is much money and the only thing you can do is walk over the bridge.
