A Green Space in Birdhaven

Birdhaven is the apropros name of the affluent neighborhood where you can find this quaint park, only steps away from the glitz and glamor of Melrose Arch. Formerly a bird sanctuary, this space is still home to many avian residents, and the placid Sandspruit River helps complete the tranquil setting.

Utrip Tips

* * While safety in Johannesburg is on the ups, it still suffers from elevated crime in many areas. As a general rule, it’s recommended to not hike alone in rural areas, or walk alone in city parks around dusk. Hiking in larger groups or with licensed guides are generally a good deterrent. Use common sense and good judgement when enjoying nature, especially in remote areas and around dusk. Private security is common in public spaces such as parks.
