Note 1 - While there is adequate parking on the grass verge it is recommended that parents with young children park at the entrance to the palm oil near the hare mobile. The road is straight and fast adjacent to the run sight. (Keep right of Proton eating pothole cunningly disguised as a puddle just inside run site).
Note 2 - It has been raining recently. Mossi repellent is recommended.
