LOOKING IN THE SQUARE

A PICTURE RECORDS A MOMENT IN TIME. It will never return, but we have the picture to cherish

Turtle Lake Waterfall, Hamilton Gardens
This waterfall looks great as a part of the Turtle Lake water feature at Hamilton Gardens. It is part of the flow of a stream which runs through the area and into the lake before exiting to run into the Waikato River further down.

Turtle Lake was man-made in the early days of developement of the gardens and is a vital part of the relaxing atmosphere the Gardens create, and is enjoyed by local people and tourists alike. In summer the Arts Festival is held in and around the many lawn and garden features in the Hamilton Gardens, which belong to, and are maintained by the Hamilton City Council on behalf of the residents of Hamilton. A proud asset and a jewel in the City's crown.

That's a good shot Dave. Did you use a zoom or crop the photo maybe to get a closer shot? It's a hard shot to take as the walkway is a fair distance from the falls. Good info too, well researched :)
Cheers
