Changes in Hamil­ton

Waikato Times Weekend - - WAIKATO WEEKEND - Catharine Cle­ments Hamil­ton

In the 25 years I have been away from Hamil­ton, the best changes I see now are:

Trees which, to my mind, have become the crowning glory of the Waikato. They ap­pear to be beau­ti­fully tended and make a won­der­ful her­itage

Trans­port which is a joy to use. Rides seem co­or­di­nated and charges rea­son­able. Best of all, driv­ers are ap­proach­able and help­ful

Tracks for bik­ing and walk­ing that are nu­mer­ous, planted and wind through great scenic ar­eas

Toi­lets that are clean and well sign­posted and bless­edly avail­able, mak­ing the trees, trans­port and tracks so much more ac­ces­si­ble

All this be­speaks plan­ning for pub­lic ac­cess and I com­mend Hamil­ton’s ad­min­is­tra­tors for this city’s live-abil­ity.
