This is the BEST park in Johannesburg by far. Beautiful forest with indigenous trees in the middle of the concrete jungle. This is the Lil Eden where I find my center.

Very well looked after park. Beautiful mosaics and sculptures of birds and wildlife.

James is a delightful host and guide sharing the surrounding history of environment and names of plants.

Please fix water pump to be stronger.

There are some who say this is not a safe place; we found it to be delightful, populated by walkers and relaxers, we felt totally at ease and enjoyed our visit.
The paths are laid with uneven rocky slabs, so good footwear is advisable although I did manage in sandals. There are some climbs but the views are good and there are loads of benches to rest and/or enjoy the sunshine.

A lovely place to spend time on a sunny day. Great walks (lots of uphill) along the paths around the area. Lots of cool shade and some open grass areas to sit and chill. Bright benches for rest spots. Spotting the animal artwork is also fun. Some good viewing places higher up. Good for a short hike and a picnic. We felt safe and relaxed. Parking is tight when busy. Places like this are real gems in a city.
