Since it is very dry season at the park right now I guess I'll take a moment to share on the status of the stream. Yes, the water level is very low. This situation enables me to carryout much clearing works on both sides of the stream. The pictures in this posting show the middle section of the stream where it meanders and form somewhat like dragon back outline in the middle of the park. On the sides of the stream the land is flat and its where many types of introduced tree species are planted. These trees could be fruit trees, flowering trees or palms. The planting idea is to allow for walks along the stream in shade as much as possible.

Foreground is the 'Pong-Pong' tree with its apple-like fruits which turn red when ripe.
This is an example of ornamental planting.
Location: Zone F
