Very well maintained park. this was my first time in PTA and my hubby took me there to relax with a burger at "BURGERS PARK". after a long days walk with heels. This made up for my sore feet. Cause I was really upset to myself for not wearing flat shoes. This fits for a day out with a picnic... More

I came across this park completely by chance after a walk round the city centre and on my way back to the Gautrain station. Quite a large park and for one that is publicly maintained I was very impressed with it. There are some nice palm trees, a lovely thatched roundhouse, a now closed bandstand but still in quite good... More

We were driving in the cahotich trafic of pretoria when we decided just to leave the car and take a break, this park just crossed up in our way, but it was a very nice surpise, very clean and calm, full of flowers, like if we were just in other city, great experience but 20 min is ok.

A great hotel. They serve the most delicious food. The staff is friendly and helpful at all the times. There are available computers and free internet near the reception area. The only challenge is the location. You cannot go out for a walk in the evenings, there are random homeless people always near the hotel.

This is without any shadow of a doubt the best park in Pretoria. The park is constantly maintained, and there's security guards patrolling at all times. Highly recommended.

.It is actually a nice well kempt park, somewhere to relax away from the noise of the city. It is spoiled somewhat by the overflowing bins and litter strewn everywhere. It has a small café, bandstand and statue commemorating the South African Scottish who died in the Great War. Nice place if you are passing but not worth a special... More

I have recently visited Burgers Park and after all the stories I've been told about it and how unsafe it was, I found it rather pleasant. As an Architectural student I have to explore these spaces that make up our city and this was one of the better places. I will admit the bathrooms where not in the best shape... More

Burgers Park is not worth a visit. There are many other beautiful parks in the Pretoria area to visit. The park is littered and not always maintained to the original Victorian standard. Melrose House across the street from the Park is well worth a visit, though.
