I had no idea this place existed until family invited us there for a birthday party, so it's safe to say they could work on their advertising! But it's a super location and worth a trip on the weekend. Lovely restaurant and plenty to keep kids entertained with all the swings etc.
Finest in the east of Jo'burg
When you explore the east of Jo'burg, this has to be the best place recreational facilities. It's been a while since I last visited but it remains extremely popular over weekends and during the warmer, greener months. There are decent restaurants, drinking and public braai-ing facilities. Security was never an issue while I visited but I would caution anyone to protect their belongings, as you cannot be over cautious.
Gillooly's Farm my Favorite Place
Gillooly's Farm is one of favorite place. on Saturday take the kids have a braai with family and friends. is one of the amazing places.
Gillooly's Farm - A heritage well worth preserving !
Even though I have been a resident of greater Johannesburg for over 50 years, I had somehow never visited Gillooly's Farm, and yes, I had missed something ! Gillooly's is a great public facility, with established lawns and trees, parking lot, toilets, and picturesque river frontage - truly a super 'Green Lung" for the people of the city of Johannesburg. There is an element of 'Public / Private' partnering, with the riverside pub / restaurant, "Mrs Sippi" - in place as a supplier of food and drink. Enjoyed a pleasant day out with many others, who enjoyed the environment, river and gardens, either as a corporate 'outing' or a gathering of family and friends. Despite a presence of 'guards' , one of the visitors had their vehicle stolen from the parking lot, which marred an otherwise pleasant day. Unfortunately the facility is showing some signs of neglect, with toilets under repair and paths, etc. obviously needing attention. This facility is one of Johannesburg's best public facilities, and every effort should be made to ensuring it is kept and maintained in tip top condition.
