“Nice place to relax”
Reviewed October 26, 2012 via mobile

Great place to relax and take a casual stroll or ride your bike. Gardens have looked better. But still a nice place with many things to do and it's free.

“pleasant place to unwind”
Reviewed October 14, 2012

We used to love this place as it is close to Germiston and nice to have a picnic. However it seems to be getting a little run down and forlorn. Still pleasant to visit though
