We will meet next to the car park. Please bring with you a notebook and pen, some water and something to eat and drink if you wish. It may be a good idea to have a folding chair with you, in case the picnic tables and chairs are taken. We will have a short meeting, then head off on our ginko (haiku walk) before we meet up again to share our haiku and observations.
Adachi Park has Japanese themed gardens and a tea house, children’s playground, dolls house made from Bristile Bricks (former factory on the adjoining land). It is a good location for picnics and a picturesque place to enjoy a walk. Adachi Park is named after Belmont’s Sister City, Adachi in Japan. There is also a Belmont Park in Adachi. There are: BBQ facilities, Picnic tables, Public toilets. Adachi Park is at 132 Great Eastern Highway, Rivervale/Ascot – on the right as you drive into the city from the East. There is a little street where you turn in to. One or two undercover seating – its on a little slope. From the city end it is just past the old Sandringham Hotel.
