Wynberg Park, which ranges over 22 hectares of sloping ground, is where the spring of the Krakeelwater river begins (hence “Springfield” Convent and School below the park).
The park is visited throughout the year for its conifer garden, and in summer boasts an attractive display of hydrangeas. Higher up the slopes of the park, visitors are able to see vestiges of the silvertree (Leucodendron argenteum), which were once so prevalent in the area. Loss of habitat has decimated the numbers of this prominent and attractive tree.
