Though not exactly very ‘bushy’, this is a really nice place for a walk close to town. I completed both circuits in the park but you could do one or the other if you were looking for something shorter.

There are a few small unofficial tracks with nice views of the river along the way and loads of birds (but no other wildlife to speak of). Signs along the track give historical information.
