History of St Georges Park

Last weekend I was part of the most informative walking tour of St Georges Park.  Photographer and journalist Ivor Markman has done some tremendous research on the park and it’s history over the years and in the process not just collected tons of interesting information, but also some very rare photographs.  Here he is showing off one of the oldest known pictures of the park while standing on the same spot it was taken way back then.

    St Georges is truly a refreshing green lung to the city, and needn't take second place to any other in the world's great cities, such as Central Park in New York or the Bois de Boulogne in Paris or even the Company's Gardens in Cape Town.

    Wonderful Park, so much to do for all ages. Sports, swimming, Children's playground. Also, the scenery around. What a wonderful day to spend a day.
