  • Neat and tidy, well maintained and feel safe. Safe parking area by picnicking & braai's, trail walks and beautiful scenery.
  • Lovely place for bird watching, in the middle of Hillcrest. Well kept and clean
  • Very nice. Need to bring proper running shoes to experience it to its fullest. Nice place for the gents to bring their potential significant other to find out what they are made of. If she can't hang, cut her loose.đŸ¤£
  • Nice place. You certainly need proper walking shoes for some of the hills but overall a really nice place. Worth a stroll either along the river or on some of the longer tougher paths
  • Beautiful and tranquil. My first time there, took my two year old who totally enjoyed the walk and a picnic after.
