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!
- Mushroom Farm Park
- Sandton Field and Study Park
- George Lea Park
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.
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.
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.
