Points of Interest

1. View across to the Wheel

A great place to start, if you are going to do a brisk walk, you might want to time yourself to see how fast you go for the next time you do the walk.

2. Grassy lunch spot and flower bed

Why not stop and smell the roses? Great water side view on this lawn area makes a pleasant lunch spot.

3. The wide boardwalk

There are quite a few seats or benches along this stretch if you need to take some notes on your walking meeting.

4. Harbour Esplanade

A favourite leg of the walk with many other people out on a lunchtime walk. Time to talk, think or simply turn off and get some exercise.

5. Table Tennis

Anyone for Table Tennis? Bring a work colleague, some table tennis bats and balls and have some fun!

6. Cow up a tree

Cow up a tree by John Kelly is a wonderful public sculpture. Look up every time you walk past and see if it makes you smile.

7. Monument Park

Another interesting spot to stop for lunch. Sit on the lawn or bench look at the artworks and enjoy the view.

8. Silence

'Silence' by Adrian Mauriks is a fibreglass sculpture along New Quay Promenade. It's nearly time to turn around. Why not pick up the pace a little and get the blood pumping?

9. Looking South

Always nice to look back at where you started, or where you are going!
