  • This is an exceptionally well maintained park with spectacular trees, gardens, ponds and little waterfalls. Lovely for picnics and photo sessions! In a boomed off area.

  • A mini botanical garden. Well maintained and enough place to sit and relax. A happy place for both pets and their owners. Wheelchair friendly but limited. There are small trails and park can be rented out for functions. Secure parking and enough shaded areas for a picnic. Highly recommend this park.
  • Beautiful park, well maintained and vert peaceful. We loved it. One request, please can dig owners clean up after their dogs? Thank you πŸ˜ŠπŸŒΈπŸ™
  • This park is very neat and has amazing trees and has a mini waterfall very cute with fish at the top...unfortunately some inconsiderate people bring their dogs and don't pick up after their animals ...very disgusting....the toilets were super dark and filthy....but overall an amazing place to picnic
  • Very clean and well maintained. Awesome place to sit and relax and listen to the water flowing. It's dog friendly as well
  • I love doing my Photoshoots at Jan Cilliers Park. Its beautiful and green with lots of places to explore.
