Desperate to leave your four walls, even if it’s just for a walk? The restrictions on movement during lockdown have given everyone a bit of cabin fever – and even more so for people living in 1 room apartments in Randburg.

Fortunately, Randburg is pretty close to Johannesburg’s economic hub – Sandton. While Sandton isn’t known for its outdoor lifestyle, if you dig a little you can find some gems. And, with parks now being declared open under level 3, it’s a lot easier to get some fresh air – which is so important, especially for those of you living in nano apartments. Plus, studies show that spending time outside is good for your physical and mental well-being.

That’s why we’ve decided to round up our top 3 outdoor activities in Sandton so you can feel some kind of normalcy. All of them are a 15-minute drive away from Randburg, so there’s no excuse to not get outside. Just don’t forget your mask, and keep your social distance, of course! 

  1. Mushroom Farm Park
  2. This amazing green space can be found right in the heart of the Sandton CBD. Take a walk along the stream, or, if you have kids let them run around on the large, well-maintained grassy areas. The on-site restaurant, Truffles On The Park, is set to re-open soon too.

    Get outside: Daisy Street, just off Rivonia Road (opposite the Radisson Blu Hotel), Sandton Central.

  3. Sandton Field and Study Park
  4. A fantastic space to get some fresh air and reconnect with nature (and it’s only a 5-minute drive from Sandton City!). The Sandton Field and Study Centre is a beautiful, tree-filled place that has the Braamfontein Spruit running through it – ideal for hikes along the river or biking.

    Get outside: Corner of 14th Street and Louise Avenue, Parkmore.

  5. George Lea Park
  6. A nice, dog-friendly park that’s safe and well-maintained. Attached is the Sandton Sports Club that’s kitted out with soccer pitches and tennis courts, so you can really get your exercise in.

    Get outside: 11 Holt Street West, Parkmore.
