Salient is an excellent design with a fresh approach for the ever-changing Web. Integrated with Gantry 5, it is infinitely customizable, incredibly powerful, and remarkably simple.


Lake Te Ko Utu in the centre of Cambridge has 5 different tracks leading down to it from street level. (number 5 on the inset map)

Lake Te Ko Utu Tracks

These walks are completely different from those described earlier in our list. Here we're into groomed grass and picnic areas. Parking, a barbeque and toilets are available at its eastern end off Albert St.

Control of drainage and water levels is problematic, and there appears to be a struggle for living space between eels and ducks in the park.

A Cedar of Lebanon was planted in the garden in 2008 as part of a world-wide acknowledgement of the trauma inflicted on Lebanon by recent wars.

 Above the south-west side of the park is a Camellia Walk developed by the Tree Trust.

In memory of Brian Mayo, a seat has been placed at the top of the north-east bank overlooking the lake.

Blackie spent many hours working on the bank below the seat; so many that we commonly refer to it as Blackie's Bank. The seat is behind the Girl Guide's hut, through a fence beside the tennis courts.

Replanting the bank after the old gum trees were removed is a big job.

Here are some helpers on Arbor Day 2014.

We've had a lot of help from the public, in particular, the Chamber of Commerce's First Fifteen group. Here's a video of the early replanting work, this time from 2015.

St. Peter's at the Lake

This year's International Baccalaureate students from St. Peter's School worked hard on the steep slope of this bank. Replanting following the removal of gum trees is a big job and will take some years to complete. We are very grateful fro the help we get from young, energetic students like these.


We've had a lot of rain lately, (26th June, 2016) so I thought I'd check out Lake Te Ko Utu and its unofficial watercourse. The new plants are holding well, but they're not yet big enough to do the job of water retention that the old gum trees were doing.
