Hollard, Jozi Trails and Johannesburg City Parks and Zoo officially launched the Jozi Trails pilot project. The project sees a R1.5 million upgrade for the Braamfontein Spruit Trail
The extremely beautiful Braamfontein Spruit attracts thousands of people annually, however has been in desperate need of an upgrade for a while now. The brand-new partnership between Hollard and the Jozi Trails Pilot Project – a non-profit initiative in association with the Johannesburg City Parks & Zoo is working tirelessly to uplift the trail network.
Now you and your loved ones can look forward to enjoying a scenic bike ride; an early morning run or walk through one of the many Braamfontein Spruit trail routes in Jozi, without having to worry about your safety or accidents caused by poorly maintained paths.
The first of a three-phase project plan focusing on the upgrade for Braamfontein Spruit trail is already underway, with the Delta Park trails already completed. So if you are a lover of nature and the great outdoors then head on over to Delta Park to check out the upgrade. You are however urged to look after the facilities, as well as ensure that you clean up after your furbaby and avoid littering.
Some of the challenges that still exist but are being looked into are as follows:-
- land erosion
- inadequate drainage
- unclear routing on trails
- criminal activity
- conflicts between the groups of people who frequent the park.
