The grand old town of York
Has four thousand men,
Living at the base of the mount,
In a gorgeious fertile glen.

The convicts laboured hard,
Building a rugged swing bridge
Crossing the Avon river,
Providing access east to west.

The town still carries today,
The heritage of yesteryear,
Buildings restored in fine style,
And lollypops wider than ear to ear.

Lovely environment, clean but some work still required to bring the park up to speed.
