Closest Town: Johannesburg
Alberts Farm
Trail Type: Day walk
Closest Town: Johannesburg
 

Description: Alberts Farm may not be known by many Johannesburg residents but it certainly has a number of good points that should be taken into account when one is looking for a place to go for a walk on a weekend afternoon in Johannesburg. The conservancy consists of about 90ha of small rocky ridges, undulating grassland stretching down to the wetland area along the Montgomery Spruit. The area is ideal for dog walking and kite flying while the more avid walker might enjoy exploring the spruit downstream to where it joins up with the Braamfontein Spruit Security Alberts Farm is perhaps one of the safer parks in the city. It should however be remembered that it is a public open space and as such basic precautions should be adhered to. Try to walk in a small group of people. Leave all your valuables at home. Always be conscious of what is going on around you. Johannesburg City Parks and the Friends of Albert's Farm Conservancy try to make your visit to the park a safe and pleasant occasion but in common with parks and public open spaces throughout the world, there is always risks. The onus is on the individual to ensure his or her own safety.
