Guided walks will leave from Payne Park at approximately 12pm, 12:30pm, and 1pm. 

  • Visit the Wishing Tree art installation. Built using donated recycled bottle caps and “wishes” collected at last year’s community event, this installation was truly made by and for the community. You could even see your own wish there!
