Activities and facilities here include camping, picnicking, BBQs and bathing in the clear cool waterof natural river pools and rapids amid mature rainforest. The park is popular with locals, especiallyat weekends.
The layout is simple, consisting of a brick and cement path running parallel to the river for adistance of one or two kilometres. It takes about 30 minutes or so to walk from one end of thepath to the other. Along the way there are around 24 gazebos for families to relax or to picnic.There are also a couple of king sized pavilions where larger groups could eat. There are twobridge across the river, one of which is a suspension (hanging) bridge.
There are two or three campsites where visitors can pitch their tents together with a number ofBBQ spots.The main attraction here is the river which was looking clean and inviting during my visit.There is no waterfall and the rapids are relatively gentle. Families were wallowing in natural poolsand sitting on rocks in the river.
