Every last Sunday of the month, a flea market called "art in the park" is held. Also other entertainment like a live brass band, dog shows etc. A relaxing stroll in the middle of town.

Since the end of Apartheid in 2004, personal security is a must in places like this. Its reputation precedes it - once a wonderful family fun place, if you mention to the locals you are going to visit St George's, there is an air of panic, with a warning to be careful. It's such a shame, as it is a beautiful place to be on a hot day. Greater security is needed within the park itself, in order to restore the reputation. Sadly though, like any local government areas in SA, little funding is available for things like this.

Little piece of English Park, Green tranquil, beautifully kept gardens, Glass house in the centre of a busy dirty dust city

An incredible place, full of trees and plants from around the world.

Sadly, the Municipality has decided that the whole park be fenced from the road (to prevent vagrants?) and the whole place is now a little uncomfortable for tourists - too many secluded spots.
Fine in a group but not recommended for singles or couples.

It's a great place in a great spot and should be made more attractive and safe for residents and visitors.

I was walking alone in this park (not advised) during the middle of the day. Suffice it to say that you should *not* enter this park because it is mostly deserted and muggers take advantage of tourists.
