LOOKING IN THE SQUARE

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

The Waikato River at Hamilton
I feel a strong affinity for the Waikato River. Though this part of the river is straight for about one kilometre, the rest of the river flows in twisting turns through our city and is a thing of natural wonder and beauty. I find enjoyment and peace whenever I am beside it. It also serves our city for water supply and as a source of recreation for those who have power boats or wish to water ski. Rowing and dragon boating sports are also carried out here giving extra enjoyment of our fine river as well as raft races in summer. The Waikato River is the character and heart of our city.
