ABOUT WYNBERG PARK / AN INVITATION
If you amble up to the section of the Park which borders Trovato Link Road, you'll find a white marble fountain inscribed with the following words: “To commemorate the Coronation of King Edward VII, 9 August 1902.” The land for the Kind Edward Park, as it was then known, was obtained via the combined efforts of William Horne, a Wynberg resident and William Morom, a councillor of the Wynberg Municipality. Together these two men negotiated the grant for this extensive stretch of ground on Wynberg Hill in the 1890s.
Once granted, the park was magnificently landscaped with waterways, lawns, trees, shrubs and formal flower displays, although a large section was allowed to remain wild. A tea-room was provided, as was a bandstand in which the military band played to large audiences -Sorry to say no longer there.
The park was formally opened in 1902 by the Honourable Thomas Graham, who spoke eloquently about the good fortune that had befallen Wynberg residents in having such natural assets, and commented prophetically that in years to come they would be glad they had conserved their open spaces (He was dead right there). After the opening ceremony at the ornamental fountain, the Guild of Loyal Women (formed during the South Africa War), planted commemorative saplings that are now handsome trees shading an area close to the duck pond.
And now this wonderland is to be the host of the MAYOR’S FREE GALA FESTIVE CONCERT brought to you by CONCERTS IN THE PARK npc. on SUNDAY AFTERNOON 17th JANUARY 2016 and what a gala Concert this is going to be.
