This is a very small city park. It's nice to walk through if in the area, but don't go out of your way. Relish Bistro is a nice, quiet spot on the corner with which to get a drink in.

There were quite a few people hanging around the park and I did get offered drugs. Probably not a particularly safe area at night - be aware.

The sprinkler system was also very erratic, spraying water all over the paths and even out onto the road outside. In a country that has a scarcity of water, this was pretty poor.

This beautiful park just east of the city with great shade trees and a good variety of plants. One of the safer parks, but has been neglected.

The park has not changed much over the past 45 years, except that when I was there late January the hedges were unkempt and the fencing broken. Wonder whether the lights work and how safe it is at night?

These gardens in a block in the east of town, have long been an escape of beauty, of quietness. There are at times people whom one should quickly walk past, or turn in another direction from, but they are rare. My experience is that my last trip I felt as though I was on my own. The other couple, I think, avoided me. A very special time; beautifully so.

This is a beautiful park that we visited a lot when we were students at the University, but these days I am unsure about the safety. We went there briefly the other day. It really is a nice park but be sure to go during the day, in a group and be safety conscious.

Springbok Park is located right next to the Dros in Hatfield. The park is a National Monument and many indigenous plant species can be seen there. One such a plant is the cycad and one in particular has a number of cones – stunning. Under a lovely thatched clearing, there is a mattress and bedding lying around, a clear indication that homeless people use the park. The park is more Botanical Park than City Park and the lush undergrowth, paths, and benches make it a pleasurable walk, albeit a short one.

This park is and still is very nice. Unfortunatly it is spoiled by vagrants living in the park and lots of rubbish lying around. Need a clean up.

This park is an oasis of peace and quiet in the middle of a lively city area. It is beautifully maintained, and it is within easy walking distance of the Hatfield Gautrain station. Well worth a visit!

A stones throw from the Hatfield Station of the Gautrain secluded from road traffic noise on all four sides by a hedge this beautiful Park started in 1905 of lawns a little stream and Indigenous Fauna and Trees with great restaurant at the Eastern boundary has been awarded the recognition as a National Park.
From its quaint simple arched entrance gate of metal Springboks leaping over your head you escape from the buzz of the traffic into a Eden of pathways amongst indigenous trees and fauna with a little Pedestrian bridge over a stream running through the Park.
The park is flat and only about three acres so all visitors can walk the full area easily.
The Park itself is never overcrowded in fact its privacy makes it feel like it is a best kept secret, yet for refreshments and excellent meals there is an extremely popular Restaurant and Conference DROS Restaurant with safe Parking on the eastern Grosvenor Street edge of the Park .
