Just to the left of the road, you can see the river. In the summer, it is covered with people enjoying the cold water on a hot summer day. You can also see people tubing here. Growing up, we were never allowed to swim there due to the undercurrent. There have been several drownings at that particular spot in the river.
There is a parking lot, but during the summer it stays full. The picture below makes it look pretty peaceful and calm, but there are sections that can get a little "hairy", especially after we get some rain.

The science teacher at one of my schools took this picture of the Wye partially frozen this winter, after we have several very cold days:
The Y (or "Wye") is yet another place the locals go to cool off on hot summer days!
