Often take our dog here. Owners are asked to keep dogs on a leash, but it seems to be quite relaxed if your dog's well-behaved. Beautiful bamboo forests and some of the trees even have labels.

A small natural space. Safe with a variety of flora. Open grass space, bamboo forest, stream running through it... Free to enter, and the gates are often open to drive in and park.

Wylie Park is an intimate natural escape for the outdoors enthusiast. I like my speed walks up the hill and my chilled out strolls along the stream. This is such a sweet tranquil paradise situated right on my doorstep. There's everything to like about it!

The perfect park for people with young children and/or dogs. So peaceful being surrounded by big, beautiful trees and rolling lawns. No need for a jungle gym, kids can climb trees!!! Awesome 👍

Hi, Im not sure about braais but its an amazing location for picnics and walking the dogs. Kids have an expansive area as well to run around, climb trees or enjoy the stream that flows through Wylie Park.
