I used the park when staying at the Protea Wanderers for the Test cricket. Whilst probably not the most direct route I walked through it on a couple of occasions to the large upmarket Melrose Arch centre with shops and restaurants. It is fairly close to the Wanderers cricket ground and also nearer the Birdhaven suburb that has some nice cafes.
This is a huge park that undoubtedly has seen better days but nevertheless it is still a nice and quite attractive park to visit although certainly used more by locals than tourists. As has been said before, it is very popular with dog walkers, mainly at the top (Birdhaven) end and is busier at weekends.
As a tourist I found it a very relaxing place to sit and take in the great views down to central Johannesburg and also have a walk. It is a huge park and I think split by a busy road. I never had an issue safety wise although it could be a bit quiet but would think the top end is probably preferable.
Unlikely to be on the tourist trail but if you want something a bit different then give it a go - I really like it.
