After lunch at a Dutch barge just outside the park we re-entered the North Park where a 30-year development includes children’s play areas and river bed renewal which has already resulted in improved water quality and wild life recovery.
The Blossom Garden, recently created in memory of lives lost to Covid and to those who saved so many, is a haven of peace and a fitting tribute. Ultimately what will remain in the mind is the awesome scale of the achievement in the hands of a very special man.
