Help us to care for the Avenue 

To make sure the Avenue stays healthy for everyone to enjoy, it will be closed it for a few months. After all the recent rain, this will allow it to rest and recover. Please help us to protect it by using the surfaced paths, or perhaps choosing a different route. If you would like to know more about this stretch of land, click here.
