There are so many things to see in St Georges Park doesn't matter if you are into sport, history or gardens. I took my kids to see the newly revamped Pearson Conservatory and took a walk throught he park and gardens before the kids went to play in the play park. I wish more people would go and enjoy the park, but the few who currently are know that its a great spot just to relax and get away from the city for a little while.

Every last Sunday of the month, a flea market called "art in the park" is held. Also other entertainment like a live brass band, dog shows etc. A relaxing stroll in the middle of town.

Since the end of Apartheid in 2004, personal security is a must in places like this. Its reputation precedes it - once a wonderful family fun place, if you mention to the locals you are going to visit St George's, there is an air of panic, with a warning to be careful. It's such a shame, as it is a beautiful place to be on a hot day. Greater security is needed within the park itself, in order to restore the reputation. Sadly though, like any local government areas in SA, little funding is available for things like this.

An incredible place, full of trees and plants from around the world.

Sadly, the Municipality has decided that the whole park be fenced from the road (to prevent vagrants?) and the whole place is now a little uncomfortable for tourists - too many secluded spots.
Fine in a group but not recommended for singles or couples.

It's a great place in a great spot and should be made more attractive and safe for residents and visitors.
