Taking an early morning stroll in the company gardens is a great way to start your weekend. The park is a 5 minute walk from 220Loop and it’s the perfect place to ease your way into the day.

The Company Gardens is well-maintained and visitors love spending time exploring the garden, admiring its array of monuments and statues, or just being in nature and absorbing the beauty around them. You could consider the garden the calm centre of our bustling city.

The Company Gardens is also home to a great restaurant serving light meals, delicious coffees, and desserts, perfect for a breakfast catch-up with friends. If heritage, art and the like is your thing, there are a few galleries and museums nearby too, including the Iziko Museums’ South African Museum, the South African Jewish Museum and the District Six Museum. Just don’t forget to feed a squirrel before you leave!
