If only they would do the minimium
May 2021
This review only covers that playground and restroom. Like so many things in Johannesburg, it has so much potential but falls short of expectations and acceptability. I am sure when the playground was built it was great and it is still okay. The biggest issue is safety. Much the the equipment has not been maintained and is therefore broken. The elements have taken their toll on a lot of the plastic parts of the equipment and they have broken. Metal parts like screws are missing and have not been replaced. There are several parts of the playground that I do not let my kids use because of these issues. Additionally, the ground surface of the playground has deteriorated and is buckling and/or collapsing across the entire playground. Additionally, there is a trash everywhere and the grounds crew does not clear off the leaves and grass clippings after mowing. Last, the restrooms have no toilet paper, soap, (and at least in the men's room, no toilet seats). If this playground was maintained properly, it would be my go-to playground for my kids but I think there are other playgrounds that are much safer and better maintained (just not in the Johannesburg park system).

Pity that it has to have security guards .

The park itself is immaculate - a huge suburban oasis, with bird sanctuary, beautiful trees, texture garden, inter-linked dams, rolling slopes and lawns, play equipment for children. In the day it is utterly wonderful, but the less trafficked areas are sadly undesirable after hours.

Beautiful outdoor walks
Oct 2020 • Friends
If you are looking for natural surroundings for your outdoor exercise then this park is perfect.
The residents spend many hours improving the park and love the park as the @cityofjohannesburg are bone idle. They have the budget but don’t maintain the park on a regular basis as laziness is their second name and I wonder where our rates go which are allocated to maintain it?
Despite the vagrants who mess up the park we still encourage everyone to use it it during daylight busy hours.
Various organizations have put in special cycling paths in order not to bother walkers.
The sunsets are glorious from there and it’s the best place to be for your walk. The police should take the vagrants to purpose built shelters!!

Time outdoors
Apr 2019
Lovely big park but nothing spectacular about it. Safe enough during the day as there are many visitors but I would still not keenly go alone. No amenities, only seen one ablution block and there was no toilet paper or soap available so be sure to take your own. There is a spot for little ones - plastic slides and swings. It's a good get out for flat dwellers.

Parkrun
Nov 2019
I did the parkrun at Delta Park, which could be considered the grail of parkruns in South Africa. The course is varied with hills and downhills, and changes whether it is done clockwise or anti-clockwise.

Delta Park has always been a pleasure for child & dog walking
Oct 2019
We lived in Craighall Park for over 40 forty years and came to know the park very well as a pleasant experience for dogs, children and adults. The entrance to the park by a new bridge from CP is a big improvement as also the tree planting program over the years.It is generally well maintained although water restrictions have taken their toll. Abuse by vehicle drivers occurs and could be stopped by the security patrols (a relatively recent positive).The water ways are generally fairly well maintained but this could be improved.A major asset enjoyed in safety by many.

Vast open space in the city jungle
Oct 2018
A great place to walk the dogs, but better still book a show at Theater in the Park. Food and drink trucks are there for you

A wide open space to relax and walk your dog
Aug 2019
I visit Delta Park frequently to walk my dog, and she absolutely loves it. There's abundant open space for the dogs to run and enjoy themselves. There are also a few dams for the dogs to swim. Many people walk their dogs and it the big advantage is its a great place for dogs to socialise with other dogs and normalise their behaviour.
The Park is also a great place for birds and lots of majestic old trees to enjoy.
