Springbok Park

Springbok Park


Pretoria, South Africa (ZA)
This park is a Provincial Heritage Site, and contains indigenous plants. It is very popular for wedding photos.


Previously known as Grosvenor Park, it became Springbok Park in the 1960s. The original name was in commemoration of Hugh Richard Arthur Grosvenor, Duke of Westminster, who was closely associated with South Africa. Incidentally, "Grosvenor" means "the great chief hunter".


The park was conceived in 1905 with the township planning of Hatfield, but the development of the park did not commence until the thirties.


Springbok Park envelopes 30 621 m², and a popular restaurant is situated on its north-eastern corner.
