My daughter decided to celebrate her 4th birthday at the gardens this year. Although we regularly visit the gardens, this was our first big event that we held here complete with having to let service suppliers in etc. The staff were incredibly helpful! They helped us set up, made sure that someone helped us carry all the party decor etc to where we were setting up, helped us get power... They really made the entire experience wonderful. Not only did we have a great day celebrating my daughter's birthday, but the friendly staff were super helpful and made everything run so smoothly!
Not only is it a great place to go for a day out with family or a romantic picnic, but hosting an event here is really great thanks to help from the staff!

Do yourself a favour and also visit this South African Botanical garden. You cannot believe it is situated in a big city. Make sure to visit the waterfall and the restaurant. Follow their calendar for functions, performances and markets. Park runs also take place on Saturdays. Remember Tuesdays are free for pensioners!
