Another local park in the neighborhood also serves as the nature preserve. I don't know why they have stone steps leading down into the river, but maybe they are for cleaning purposes?
All along the river, we can see several stone steps going down into the water.
I am glad that they chose to use huge stones for the steps instead of building moder-looking cement and steel structures.
Although the puppy doesn't need stairs to jump down into the river, she really likes playing on stairs. It doesn't matter whether we are at the shrine or at this river!
