This site is located in the lower reaches of the Selwyn River, a short distance from Lake Ellesmere.
This site is monitored for recreational water quality during the summer months only.
At this site, the Selwyn River is deep and slow moving partially because it is confined by high stopbanks. Walking is possible along these stops banks.
Very poor recreational water quality limits its suitability for swimming.
Recreation information has moved to the "Can I Swim Here?" section of LAWA
