This is a pleasant walk along the Braamfontein River starting in Delta Park and ending with a picnic in the Botanical Gardens by Emmarentia Dam -- the first rerun of a series of nature explorations in suburban Johannesburg that we did two years ago. From the park, we’ll follow the stream southwards through Victory Park, Parkhurst, Linden, Greenside, and Emmarentia (4.2 km). Vege in the gardens and bring a picnic basket, blanket, frisbee, kite, games, whatever you can think of. Perhaps we'll do a late lunch later.

In the opposite direction from Delta Park, the river can be followed northwards along two other trails. We’ll try those another day.

* 2nd part: Delta Park to Field & Study Centre (6.7 km from Blairgowrie to Parkmore)
* 3rd part: Field & Study Centre to Paulshof (9.0 km from Parkmore to Paulshof)

DIFFICULTY
Easy-peasy! Anyone capable of two hours of shopping can do this.

CHILDREN AND DOGS
Kiddies welcome. Dogs must be on a leash in the gardens (but no one respects that).
