A close up of a flower
This 16ha nature reserve on the outskirts of Houghton is set against lovely koppies with well-developed indigenous gardens. Paths ramble across the hillsides with views of the city from various sides, mixing urban life with local vegetation. The Wilds provides a pristine natural environment, appropriate for small corporate events. It is a lovely space for wedding and other types of photography. With running waterfalls and fountains, it provides a gentle respite from the nearby inner-city suburbs. At the peak of The Wilds is a sundial that marks a wonderful city skyline view. Even in winter, the park is evergreen, with wild red aloes to provide colour against grey skies. Given its stature as a nature reserve, events at The Wilds are limited to ensure that the natural flora and fauna are protected.
