The park does not have any toilet facilities or restaurants on site. It is lovely for walks and picnics and has a small stream that runs through it. The park is perfect for photo shoots.

Wylie Park is an intimate natural escape for the outdoors enthusiast. I like my speed walks up the hill and my chilled out strolls along the stream. This is such a sweet tranquil paradise situated right on my doorstep. There's everything to like about it!

Hi, Im not sure about braais but its an amazing location for picnics and walking the dogs. Kids have an expansive area as well to run around, climb trees or enjoy the stream that flows through Wylie Park.
