forest hill wetland
Recreation and rehabilitation were the main focus points when it came to designing this project. The wetland will provide a place for different social activities while reintroducing the endemic habitat of the site.
This project revolved around the rehabilitation of the site to its indigenous state. It was very important in this project as the design intent was focused on creating a truly South African experience for its users. A nature walk has been included in the design, wandering through the fenced off area where a number of various antelope species have been introduced. In terms of stormwater management, a water reticulation system has been designed to work in a series of ponds/wetlands which will contribute to the reintroduction of natural vegetation to the area.

Along the walk descriptions will be indicated for users to truly appreciate the experience and associate themselves with Nelson Mandela’s life story.
