“Paradise”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 3, 2013

First we were surprised by the friendliness at reception and then as we entered this lush garden we were amazed around every corner. Huge trees, fertile ferns, little waterstreams, everything in complete harmony just as God intended it to be. All along the pathway there are chairs and tables where you can sit and enjoy the sound of the wind in the trees and you can try and spot some of the birds.

“Tranquil”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 24, 2013

I did expect a bit more, It's not a very long walk so to make it worth your while bring along a picnic and just relax. A pity you can hear the noise from the N2.

I must say that all Parks Board attractions we went to in Western Cape were surprisingly well maintained and all facilities i.e. picnic sites and toilets were clean.

“Gone backwards”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed January 19, 2013

Each year we go and we notice how the bird population has all but disappeared where we used to have baby parrots flying around and nestling on us we saw 2.

“a short walk through the forest”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2013

weather wasn't great when we went here so we weren't impressed by the boardwalk. Maybe on a hot, sunny day when you need shade would be better but I would not recommend this attraction.
