Members of the Rotary Club of Gisborne have spruced up a walkway and lookout over the city their predecessors put in 45 years ago.

In the 1973-74 year, club members — with help from periodic detention workers — constructed a path and lookout at the north-western end of Whitaker Street.

On Saturday, present-day club members tidied up the path to make it easier for people to get to the lookout, and repaired and refurbished the seats on the track.
