Lonely Planet review
A raised highway was torn down and cement roads removed in this US$384-million urban renewal project to ‘daylight’ this stream. The clear water that now flows for 5.8km down this beautifully landscaped oasis is actually pumped in at great expense for elsewhere, inciting the ire of environmentalists.
