In the outlying suburbs near Little Falls, new townhouse complexes are changing the face of Johannesburg. And with this development comes an increasing need for green spaces and recreation for city-dwellers.
Wilgeheuwel was created in one day: the foundations laid, the trees planted, and the equipment brought in as part of the 'Extreme Park Makeover' to bring new environmental zones to busy developments.
The space is ideal for small corporate events, filming and photography, and is a wonderful way to see people at play in the suburbs.
There are swings and roundabouts and a picnic area for relaxing. Dogs are allowed, but must be on a leash.
Getting there: From the Clearwater Mall travel north along Christian De Wet road and turn left on to Hendrik Potgieter Road. Turn right at the intersection of Krugerrand Road. You will pass three right turns before reaching Florin road.
