Such a great spot, whether for a cycle or a run, a walk with family or friends. The views are great, the pathways are well maintained and it's not far from the city!

Not yet. My understanding is it will be complete sometime in 2017. I rode my bike down it a ways last year and it ended in a wash out. It'll be great when it's complete!
