Such a lovely little park in a beautiful part of Waterkloof. Great water feature in the middle. Nice place to read a book or just walk barefoot on the grass. Would’ve gotten 5 stars if it were slightly bigger and dogs could be off leash. But that’s just my preference. Too beautiful.

Great place for a weekend picnic. Well maintained park in Pretoria that's still relatively safe to visit. Well kept Gardens and big lawns to run and play with dogs. Good place to get some air and spend time outdoors. Big trees provide shade and serenity to relax.

Beautiful hidden gem! We were really surprised by what we found. A beautiful, well maintained park with a stunning water display. The bottom pond is a bit stale and full of stagnant growth, but the top pond is worth the walk. The fish and birds are great and the top area is quiter and more aesthetically pleasing. Dogs are permitted, but only on a leash and picnics are very welcome. The bathrooms need a lot more work, but are decent for a free park.
