Beautiful and free!

Enjoy a picnic in a beautiful well maintained garden - and it won't cost you a cent. Plenty of space for kids and pets with lots of pathways to explore.

Jan Cilliers Park, located in Groenkloof Pretoria - A well maintained park, pet friendly, clean and water features. 37 Years ago we took our wedding photos in this park. Since we now stay in Cape Town we thought we should visit the park while visiting Pretoria. We were pleasantly surprised. There was a car guard to watch our car and... More

Very pleasant place to relax and picnic. Safe park with well-maintained lawn. Two dams and stream that runs through the middle. Dogs welcome. Toilets OK, not great.

We did my daughter's birthday Photoshoot here. Plenty spots for a great photoshoot. It is a lovely well maintained park. Dogs are welcome too & it was great seeing all the people pop in with their dogs.

Always looking for dog friendly parks in Pretoria, we were delighted to find this wonderfully kept park! Safe and secure. Dog had a blast in the little stream. Lots of picnic places and heaps of people enjoying the park without you feeling overcrowded. Cannot wait to go again!

I went to Jan cilliers Park for the first time last year: I was amazed! Who knew such a lovely place existed in Pretoria?! Beautiful Green lawns, ponds with massive Koi fish, little water falls - it is just amazing. I couldn't wait to take my family there and once I did, they were just as impressed as I was.... More
