Wordless Wednesday – A tranquil hidden gem in Jozi

Being a fitness junkie, I always try to find interesting new and fresh spots around Jozi to run, hike or just workout. I do Parkrun every Saturday at our park, and always felt I wanted more of that. The beauty of Parkrun is you can walk if you don’t feel like running. For us it’s the best solution because dear husband hates running. And now Discovery has added “My run” , a Sunday version of Parkrun. We tried out the RIVERSANDS FARM VILLAGE and got hooked. The trail is easy enough for the kids, and the best part is we get to enjoy the market after our 5km walk.


  1. I loved the pictures. It shows that you and kids have enjoyed your day.
    Stay blessed.

  2. I share your husband’s dislike of running so this nice walk would be just perfect for me too – and it looked like such a nice day too!

  3. What a beautiful place to get out with the family and enjoy nature! Looks like the weather is cooling down there too. Can’t wait for fall to finally hit the south!

  4. Looks like a fun place for everyone, runners and non-runners alike. And I’d love to check out the market afterwards too.

  5. The pictures of your family are wonderful! I wish I shared your passion for running. Iā€™m more like your husband, I hate running! We have some great trails where I live so I am definitely going to try a family hike this weekend. Thanks for the motivation!

  6. OMG those minion tyres ! We love how all your photos exude happiness šŸ™‚

    And this place you have featured most certainly sounds like a treasure

  7. I too used to hate running. Iā€™m finally starting to like it! I only wish I lived in such a pretty place as you to enjoy running outdoors.
