Situated east of Johannesburg's CBD, Pioneers Park, built on top of a reclaimed mine dump, is a lovely spot for a braai or picnic. It is advisable to bring your own portable braai. The floral lush landscape provides for a wonderful half-hour stroll or photo opportunity. The area is "boom-box" and alcohol-free (not allowed) with secure parking. During the summer months flower shows are held in the park.
The Spectacular Musical Fountains will be illuminated on the following dates between 19h00 and 20h00:
Admission : R20 for children and pensioners and R30 for adults. Tickets are available at the gate.
