Delta Park


One of Jo'burg's largest public parks, Delta Park is ideal for long strolls and picnics. It is best known for its stunning explosion of pink and white cosmos flowers, which draw hordes of eager photographers every March and April. The Delta Environmental Centre, near the main entrance, offers wildlife-related courses for adults and children.
