This walk is beside the Heathcote River in Cashmere and features swans and woodlands and an interpretation panel.
The Government is asking for everyone to stay at home. Their advice is that you can go for a walk or exercise outdoors for a short time, and to stick to simple walks or exercise spots close to home.
When you are out, you must stay two metres away from anyone who is not in your household.
Parks and cemeteries are open for pedestrian access only, and where possible we have closed off park car parks. Please do not use any play equipment or exercise equipment.
The following are closed:

Start at Earnlea Terrace (opposite South Library, Colombo Street). You can often see a pair of white swans here outside the private residence Swan Lake; affectionately known as Sam and Samantha. Follow the formed gravel path beside the river through Ernle Clark, a beautiful woodland reserve.
For a longer walk you can continue along beside the river on sealed footpaths. Carefully cross the busy Cashmere Road to reach Cashmere Valley Reserve, which has a fabulous playground (another 30-minute return).
