Greenstone

  • @greenstoneshoppingcentre has a roller skate park for kids and adults. The entrance fee with skate hire works out to about R150 a person. 
  • @rush_greenstone has an amazing area that has been redone recently which is fun for all ages. 
  • Greenstone mini mart has mini golf and go karting. Go karting for smaller kid is a win win for all. 

Johannesburg North

  • @nctheatresa has a great holiday line up. Tickets start at R120 a person. Keep an eye out on their Instagram page as they do have specials. 
  • Military museum next to the JHB Zoo is a short trip but worth it. Tickets are R40 for adults and R35 for school kids. You can book a private tour from R70. 
  • @huddleparkgolf_jhb is a great space for nature lovers. Load your kids bikes up and allow them to ride into the sunset. Ticket prices can be found on their website. 
  • @originscentre_wits  is a great learning and exploring center for kids and adults.
  • @jameshallmuseumoftransport is amazing for kids who love cars. There is no entrance fee but please consider leaving a donation.

Other places I have found but have not tried:

  • @hennops_hiking_trail 
  • @happyislandza_ 
  • @play_town_za 
  • @dinoparksa 

Please add places you have visited or that your kids love.
