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).
