Route 67 Election Queue and Votes of the Future

There are two ways to walk up the Donkin Reserve from Chapel Street.  The first is up the Mosaic Stairs and the second along a winding path that snakes it's way up to the lighthouse and pyramid.  The path is called the Election Queue as it represents the winding queues on election day during the first democratic elections in 1994.  It's the same walkway that skateboarders have discovered to be the ideal downhill run making it very much a multi purpose walkway. On the walkway are painted crosses with names next to them.  During the official opening of Route 67, 3000 school kids stood in a symbolic voting line along the path.  It is their names next to the crosses and each cross represents a future vote.
