A mini botanical garden. Well maintained and enough place to sit and relax. A happy place for both pets and their owners. Wheelchair friendly but limited. There are small trails and park can be rented out for functions. Secure parking and enough shaded areas for a picnic. Highly recommend this park.

Came to the park when exploring during a short visit to Johannesburg. Seemed well maintained, with some beautiful trees and flora, labelled with names too, which made it easier for me as a non South African to identify some unknown species. Lots of space for picnics too, with the trees providing plenty of shady spots.

This park is very neat and has amazing trees and has a mini waterfall very cute with fish at the top...unfortunately some inconsiderate people bring their dogs and don't pick up after their animals ...very disgusting....the toilets were super dark and filthy....but overall an amazing place to picnic
