About the garden

Step into an inspiring environment where art and nature cleverly come together. With fascinating sculptures, created by local and international artists, dotted among green sweeping lawns and spacious fields, NIROX Sculpture Park is a 30-hectare picturesque creation.

Just a 45-minute journey from Johannesburg and Tshwane, the park is situated within the beautiful Kkatlhamphi private nature reserve and is host to over 50 permanent and long-term installations as well as at least one annual sizeable exhibition. Meander through a trail of artworks that peek out from behind mature trees, admire the winding river and watch birdlife swoop over the serene space. Then, head to the woodfired grill and tapas cafe for a selection of delicious dishes.

NIROX also holds a diverse programme of events that enables visitors to regularly enjoy workshops, concerts, performances and festivals within the natural setting.

Make a day of it. I suggest going in summer as the lawns are green and inviting. You can get some small meals at the coffee shop, you don't have to eat at the main restaurant which can be pricey for what you get all be it good quality. I would give it five stars if they allowed you to take your own water bottle. The gardens are more of an attraction than the sculptures.

So tranquil and magical. It's like being transported into some kind of fairytale. The best 'green bath' ever. Just gorgeous nature all around you, outshines the art for sure, but all the same - wonderful creations. Take a book, a notepad, someone you need to have a long conversation with

Art meets nature in the best way possible. It's like an outdoor art gallery. The works of art are amazing and the place well kept . I would suggest you start at the restaurant and get some water or a beverage before you start roaming as you can get lost in the lovely place and get really thirsty on a hot day and you are not allowed to bring any food or drink into the park .

This place is beautiful and peaceful! If you're a fan of art, you would really love visiting this place. I'm not sure if this is a spot where you can go and picnic, I haven't really seen anyone doing that. My only critique, is that entrance fee is way too expensive! We decided to go there spontaneously, but never expected to pay R150.00 per person.

Great afternoon out. The grounds are impeccably well maintained. Was disappointed that there is limited to no information about the sculptures. Give it a try...its something different. Note they only open on weekends and public holidays. No picnics or food items allowed inside.
