Faerie Glen Nature Reserve remains closed under level 4 lockdown

Please note that the City of Tshwane has decided to keep the Faerie Glen Nature Reserve closed until 25 July under the amended Lockdown Alert Level 4 regulations.

We know that many people are confused and unhappy that the reserve remains closed, even though parks and beaches may remain open.  The decision was made by the City of Tshwane, due to lack of Covid-19 compliance by visitors witnessed in CoT reserves. 

We hope that the reserve will reopen at the end of the extended Level 4 lockdown.  Until then, please stay healthy and safe.
