Winding pathways along the banks of the Otepuni Stream provide a refreshing break from the city’s central business district.
A few minutes’ walk from the city centre, Otepuni Gardens covers 9.4 hectares and encompasses four city blocks.
The gardens were once the main city park, complete with a nursery, display houses and aviaries, but those have now gone, although the charm and beauty of the gardens remain.
Joggers, cyclists and walkers, take advantage of the sense of seclusion offered by the gardens, which have been enhanced and hidden by stopbanks to protect the city from flooding.
The Otepuni Gardens are a popular venue for weddings and picnics; bookings are essential.
