R 10 parking for 5 hours parking, which is great. Every shop you can imagine is in this mall you can spend hours in here. The food court has many tables and chairs, now all joined together which is a bit annoying. The tables for 4 or 2 people have been decreased.

Canal walk has almost everything that a shopper wants. With three super stores PnP, Checkers and Game it addresses even the grocery shoppers.

Fairly typical South African mall. All of the major chains are there. There is a large movie theatre. There is plenty for children to do. Plenty of parking but check which entrance you go into and which level so you don't loose your car. Plenty of choice re restaurants to suit all pockets. Can spend a whole day here in... More

When all's said and done....it's a mall. Plenty of shops, well known brands as well as independent shops and stalls, kids play areas, usual fast food places as well as nicer restaurants. It got us out of the heat for a few hours.

Went with friends at 11am and did plenty of shopping along with lovely lunch and ended with a cinema treat leaving there at 7pm...This Mall offers great Shops, Stores, Bars , Restaurants that meet all needs plus a Woolworths to get a lovely bottle of chilled Chenin Blanc to end the day at home.
