Braamfontein Spruit Trust monthly group walks

Joburg walks

Joburg walks

It seems we are heading into winter and before you snuggle up under that blanket and forget about any exercise why not join the Braamfontein Spruit Trust in their monthly group walks? It’s an excellent way to keep your body moving, meet some new people and walk in one of Johannesburg’s green spaces. You may even be surprised by how many spaces there are, Johannesburg isn’t just high rise buildings!

Some important things to note are that the starting times of the walks will vary according to the season and the nature of the walk. Remember to bring a hat and comfortable clothes and shoes as well as liquids and a light snack – and a walking stick if you like.

Where it is possible, information will be supplied during the walks on any points of special interest.

Diarise the following dates and times so you don’t miss out.

Sunday 18 April:
On Sunday 18 April enjoy a walk in Moreleta Kloof, Pretoria Accommodation. Meet at 08h00 for 08h30 in the first car park on the right hand side just after you enter the Moreleta Reserve. There are plenty of unguided walks and a lot of game – unfortunately you can’t bring your four legged friend on this walk. There are both picnic and toilet facilities as well as a restaurant on site which offers a Sunday buffet for R95 a person.

Sunday 23 May:
On Sunday 23 May meet at No. 126 Kelvin Drive at 07h45 for 08h00 as the walk begins promptly at 08h00. Please contact Judith or Rick on +27 (0)11 802-2685 if you intend to do the walk. You’ll begin with a brief walk through part of Morningside to get to the river (bring a plastic bag and some rubber gloves as picking up litter is encouraged), you’ll then walk through Ernest Ullman Park to Katherine Street. There is no admission fee, however a donation would be appreciated as Rick and Judith would like to erect a locked gate to enable access to the northern side of the Spruit from the bottom of the property.

Duncan Guy will lead a walk in Kensington / Belgravia on a historical walk on Sunday 27 June, meet at 08h45 for 09h00 at the Darras Centre on the Corner of Kitchener and June Streets, Kensington. A donation of R10 per person is required for this walk where you will go up Langerman Kop, where the Foster Gang were caught and from there move on to Jeppe Boys for a talk about this historic school and from there on to St James’s in Marshall Street which is now a school of philosophy.

Other walks:
With walks taking place every month this is your opportunity to reconnect with the beautiful surroundings in Gauteng and you can relax while getting a bit of exercise. There are walks planned every month until December 2010 so for more information you can telephone Colm on 011 616- 6934 or Margaret on 011 614-3391 (after hours please).
