Open day at the Bird Sanctuary in Bryanston every first Sunday of the month

Wondering what to do during the weekend? You are invited to come to the Cumberland Bird Sanctuary to enjoy a picnic and relaxing day in the sun. This Sunday, 5 May is open day at the Sanctuary. Gates open from 08:30 – 16:30.

CBS_Entrance_2The Cumberland Bird Sanctuary is approximately 5.2 hectares in size and is a “Protected Area” with the entrance situated on Cumberland Avenue in Bryanston, between Angus Rd and Moray Drive. Although it is in the middle of the suburb, in a built up area, there are an abundance of birds with 82 species currently on the Birdlist. There is a bird hide overlooking a small dam. Paths have been laid out and there are some picnic tables and benches. It is a peaceful haven where the whole family can enjoy a walk or picnic. No fires are allowed and in the interest of the bird life, no dogs are allowed.

The park is open to the public on the 1st Sunday of every month.
