This is just an ok park for walks/runs. It is however, poorly maintained with rubbish floating in the lake and scattered along the paths. The Little EarthKu Tearoom in the park itself was a lovely place to rest from the 30°C morning sun and served excellent scones but with terrible coffee. The place itself was a mess with ants (that...

Very big park for avid runners or joggers, theres even chalets, food shops and lush greeneries awaits you. During the weekend or certain nights, there will be a light water display show in the night time!

This park used to be a small mosquito infested lake with some chalets for shady rendevous by the side of the road in the 80's. Now, it is a beautiful landscaped park with proper walkways and gazebos to sit down for refreshment. There is even a small swimming pool for children. I love going there to have scones and coffee...

This is a pretty area of parkland a few kilometres drive away from the city centre in JB. Not too much to see but nice enough.
