We have lots of scenic picnic spots across the area which we encourage you to enjoy.  They do get busy, particularly during the summer, please do not park on the roads or in any unauthorised places. If the car park is full, the area is at capacity. Please seek an alternative picnic spot.
We ask all visitors treat the picnic sites responsibly. Please take-home litter and do not have any fires or BBQ’s. Please keep dogs under close control and clean up after them.  The river hosts very special wildlife, we ask you avoid moving rocks and building dams, this helps to preserve their natural habitat.
