I just visited the park to observe how the new liquor selling hours were effected, just before the lockdown.
This was the first time I ever saw this place as empty as if was, I could only count myself and one couple seating on a bench. Huckleberry's restaurant I the vicinity, was also empty, the parking lot is the evidence as can be seen on attached pictures. The park was as naturally tranquil with the sound of birds and water running down the stream. I enjoyed it, unfortunately due to emptiness and darkness I had to vacate the place.
Hoping that the lockdown will not last for the year.
#StayHome.

Since the begging of COVID-19 and lockdowns I have stayed away from the place and only visited it once the lockdown was eased sometime last year. At the time the park looked like a mini jungle and desseted.
So this year wheyi visited, it looked better than the last time. Lawn cut, new flowers planted and trees also trimmed. The restaurant, also looks fresher, with. slight changes there and there. The only sad thing is that, the tree that was like a trademark crossing over the stream has been totally removed, it used to be liked by kids using it to cross over the stream and couples posing for pictures next to it or on top of it, especially the ladies ( see screenshot).
As usual there were a number of gruops celebrating birthday parties. At least, there was no littering of the stream this time, maybe is the effectiveness of the pictures we were posting in the past,
The visitors were of mixed races and ages, and as usual dog lovers were also present taking a walk with their dogs.
All in all I enjoyed my time under the sunny weather and clean environment and hope it will remain like that.

My husband and I had the absolute pleasure of having lunch at Huckleberry’s Restaurant on Sunday, 5 July 2015 situated at Magnolia Dell.

We were seated in the outside seating area. Despite the fact that the restaurant was filled to capacity, the ambience was very tranquil and serene.

We were amazed by how many people enjoyed a leisurely stroll around the park with pets.

The park also boasts the perfect ambience and setting for a picnic. At the time of our visit the park was clean and neat.

The park boasts a children’s play ground as well as plenty of space to run and play around.

Magnolia Dell is a tranquil oasis away from the hustle and bustle of the city.

The Intiem Love Bridge is situated next to the restaurant and not to be missed (see my review)!

Recently, I visited the park on both a Saturday and Sunday just to relax and observe the latest trends and behavioral payterns, based on my previous observation and also to see if latest homeless people murders had any effexct on visitors to the paaaark. Even though the killings happened at the small open park axross the road.

So far, things seem to be getting better. My major previous concern was, littering, especially on Saturdays when there is a lot of parties tking place, Now I notice that littering is not as huge as in the past. Maybe due to my previous reviews emphasizing on littering.
Anyway, the place remains attractive and well maintained, however, use of braai stands and using of the park as soccer ground is becoming a problem. Locked public toilets remain an inconvenience to visitors.
The other continuing advantage is access to free Wi-Fi of 1000 MB per user per day, courtesy of Tshwane Municipality. in closing I recently enjoyed witnessing a couple celebrating birthday for their small dog, dressed in pinkish cloth and being taken pictures with full blown bunch of pink balloons, It was so interesting to see the dog posing patiently for the pictures. I just said to myself, " what a lucky dog."
The downside is the sight of that trade mark tree that was cut of in the center, overlapping on top of water stream, it looks barren, hopefully b it will grow some fresh leaves that will make it attractive once more. Go on and enjoy the park and please remember not to litter or contaminate the stream.

I recently visited the place several times and I have noticed that there are certain emerging trend recently.
On weekends, the place has become a big venue for; Baby Shower parties, birthday parties, as well as photo shoot location for models and couples. Recently there were budding movie makers, shooting a love story movie.
However one thing that continues to bother me is the littering of the water stream, especially plastics and bottles. At this age and time m people still do not value our water sources. This spoils the very nature attraction that they come to enjoy.
I have also seen people putting big tents and braai stands, of which are not allowed in the park, and in certain instances I have seen Tshwane Metro Police enforcing the by-laws, by forcing them to remove them.
Overall, the park continues to be well maintained and WiI-Fi hotspot seems to be working perfect all the time.
The biggest disappointment is that the public toilets are still locked and welded, leading to women having to help themselves behind the toilets in full view of other people. A solution to this problem must be found. Word of caution always keep an eye on your valuables, as there are those looking for any opportunity to pounce.
Oh, I nearly forgot, one other annoying thing, playing of football in the park, it infringes on other people's enjoyment, as sometimes the ball hits other people;s drinks and leads to fights, by the way it is also prohibited. Otherwise the park continues to be a big attraction with a lot of international tourists visiting on a weekly basis.

This is a very lovely park in Pretoria. Unfortunately, due to lack of maintenance or policing, it is very dangerous to go there during the evening / night. The restaurant on the premises, Huckleberry's, is highly recommended.

A nice park with well kept green lawns. A nice restaurant is on the premises and there is a nice pond which sadly is seldom full. A small river runs through it.
