TRAILS FOR EVERYONE TO ENJOY

The beautiful Braamfontein Spruit is Johannesburg’s best-kept secret. Stretching along 37km of municipal parkland, it is the largest urban forest in the world and, like the thousands of Jozi dwellers who spend time there each year, we love it! However, it’s in urgent need of some TLC and Jozi Trails is leading an upliftment project that will make it safer, easier and more fun for everyone to use.

The city is desperately under-funded to grow the Spruit to its full potential as an outdoor safe recreational space hence the partnership between JCPZ and Jozi Trails to build and maintain the existing trail system for multiple use. Such partnerships exist internationally such as models seen in Hyde Park and Central Park.

From the daily commuters who take its pathways to work, to the kids who kick balls there after school, and the families and friends who gather on its grass lands at weekends, the “Spruit” is a go-to place for hikers and mountain bikers, strollers and trail runners, birdwatchers and dog walkers and everybody else who loves to get outdoors and spend time in Jozi’s very own inner city green space!

What Are We Doing?

  • Finding Sustainable Solutions!
  • Applying for all required environmental approvals
  • Maintaining and improving the existing trail system
  • Creating a management plan for the full trail system
