    Visited the lovely Green Point Park yesterday for the first time in 2 years, don’t know what took me so long!

    Incredible effort has been taken in the design and planting. As far as I understand exclusively indigenous plants with a focus on biodiversity.

    The wetlands system is awesome. Difficult to get decent pics with my phone but stocked with what I believe to be indigenous tilapia.

    But then also noticed plenty of what looks like swordtails? Perhaps someone decided to ‘rehome’ his / her swordtails and they not only survived but multiplied very rapidly.... the males have long thin green swords, couldn’t really capture on camera. Perhaps someone else have seen them?

    Anyway, awesome park and lovely outing with or without kids.
