Took the kids here to play in the park. Adults got to appreciate all the luscious foliage and beautiful flowers. We enjoyed a scone with jam and cream as well as some local rooibos tea. Lovely day spent with family and friends.

Lovely picnic area that is frequented by families. Has a small zoo also with entrance fees. Coffee shop on site with a few restaurants just across the road - alot more restaurants down Florida road which has its own night vibe.

Very popular. Has a lovely restaurant among the trees. Big children's playground. Many kids parties on a weekend. A small zoo with mostly monkeys and birds. The vendors selling hand crafted nik naks can be annoying as there are so many of them.

Refreshing walk in the park to view the botanicals and watch the families enjoying their outings on a Saturday afternoon. Park was clean and well kept. Separate playground for children near the zoo. Many families were enjoying sporting activities.
