So come and relax and fire up some chops or find yourself a nice spot for a picnic. Watch this space – a new restaurant will be opening soon!
Melrose park has also become the new home of our ever popular Acro-bungy. Experience the Acro-bungy – an activity that will have you flying up from the ground to 14 metres high in a few seconds. Some call it the ‘reverse bungy’, whilst others have compared it to a catapult or being propelled out of an aircraft.
Gerald Satiyi, Acrobranch Johannesburg Park Manager: “I have been with Acrobranch since the first park opened in Johannesburg in 2010. I have seen the company grow into 5 parks, a variety of obstacles and one great adventure. Working at Acrobranch allows me to meet different people every day and this has made a huge impact on my life.”
