Since my last review, the Germiston Lake grounds (better known as Victoria Lake) underwent a massive multi-million rand upgrade. It is thus necessary for me to change my ratings and comments on the lake. It has now become a popular spot for wedding photographs with...More

Great place to just chill and breathe in some fresh air. Good for braais, picnics, skating, and equipped with a skatepark, kids' play area and a wedding hall. Good for morning/evening jogs.

I was there last weekend. Hundreds of people and 8 stinking portaloos that were full up to the top with faeces and flies buzzing around. This is really unacceptable as I had to leave to go toilet elsewhere.

Not much crowd but a cool water lake surrounded by greener lush grass and platforms for fishers. Good place in Germiston near Rand Airport area and school. Liked as a place to sit only nothing as tourist place to visit.
