I took a walk up Happy Valley last week while I was doing a recce for an Amazing Race I organised. Early morning and with no wind walking there was absolute bliss. Not a soul in sight, birds chirping and the cool air on my face. What a spot and so under-utilised. The lawns were cut, gardens mostly well looked after and the pathways cleaned. A little maintenance is needed on two or three of the figures and some of the railings next to the Shark River but otherwise Happy Valley is still as beautiful as always and crying out to be enjoyed.
