Pack a blanket and a large picnic basket with snacks and goodies, and take a trip to this verdant park where farm animals abound. Cows, donkeys, goats, chickens and rabbits roam freely, unfazed by the presence of humans, making this the ideal place to view these animals at close quarters. Follow rabbits to their rabbit holes where they house their young, and watch how they interact with each other and their environment. The park remains one of the few places that allows visitors to feed the animals. Fresh carrots can be purchased from the kiosk.
Ive been going to the bunny park since I was a little girl. And still today I enjoy going there. But ive noticed that most(all) the animals are being miss treated!! The donkys are under poor conditions, the bunnys look terrible and so for all the other animals in the park!!!! I hate to complain but someone has to do it...
We went there today and had a blast of a time! Although the weather did not exactly play along, it was great. My daughter (3 years old) loved the fact that she could feed and touch the animals. We will be going back to visit the Bunny Park every second weekend from now on. P.S...Remember to bring all your goodies for a braai. There are lots of places to braai. Entrance is free. There is a kiosk, not sure what you can and cannot buy there, as I did not buy anything at the kiosk. Take lots of vegetables (carrots, potatoes, lettuce) for the animals. If you forget about the vegetables, you can always buy it at the Bunny Park.
Recently there were calls from the public to scrap the bunny park and to sell the land for housing. However it has been decided instead to give the park a 20 Million rand revamp over the next 5 years, the first phase has begun with the planting of trees and grass, lets hope that the revamp goes according to plan and the park is restored to its past glory.
We live within walking distance to the park and it gives my daughter ( 2 yrs old ) great pleasure to feed the animals and to have her face and hands licked by the goats, you need to remember this is really a place for kids, they see past the disrepair and have a fun time when visiting.
Note to tourists: this is not in Johannesburg; it's about 35-40km east. A park past it's prime & in need of upgrading. Best visited in summer when the grass is growing. Good for children who (or adults) who do not deal with nature on a regular basis, eg those who live in dense cities.
It's a fun place for younger children. Be sure to take carrots and other vegetables to feed the animals.
It may be free entrance but it certainly was not worth paying. It was not even worth the cost of diesel driving there. The whole park has a totally run down appearance and could do with a total upgrade. This is certainly needed if the Bunny Park wants to continue to be graded as a tourist attraction. Shame on you Ekurhuleni Metro for allowing this.
I now live in the UK, but I clearly remember visiting the Bunny Park as a child, around 35 years ago. Once or twice a year we used to visit freinds, the Gilbransons, who lived in the area, and they would take us there for a relaxing afternoon out. We really enjoyed taking carrots along and watching the bunnies hopping around and would even name them. It was the first memory I recall of being in touch with wildlife and the sense of excitement one gets just watching them. I am so glad that children can still visit the Bunny Park and get immense enjoyment from it.

We enjoyed the open spaces for the kids to play and run after the bunnies. It is nice to have a place where young and old can go and relax and have some family time. The picnic spots were very neat and tidy - thanks! Thanks also for the fun stuff for the kids to do!
Dislike: My husband really wants to see some grass.
We sure will be back!
My grandchildren were looking foward to a day at the Bunny Park,only to be disappointed that there was a handfully of not very healthy bunnies! As we entered my granddaughter asked why the people were taking the carrots home and not feeding the bunnies, we soon found out why. Unfortunately the Bunny Park has deteriorated considerably. It is a shame that it has been badly neglected, as we are running out of petting zoos/bunny parks/animal farms to take our children to, with the exception of the JHB Zoo. I am sure that the public will happily pay an entrance fee if the Bunny Park is restores to its original state with healthy animals and decent ablution facilities and picnic areas.
I grew up in the same town and as an adult thrilled to see this park come into being. We actually donated one of our lambs, and used to take my nephew to visit some 35 years ago.
So glad to hear the "Bunny Park" is still there.
