The project entailed the planning for the upgrading of the existing Derdepoort Metropolitan Recreation Resort, aiming to address some of the congestion issues on important public holidays while providing additional visitor facilities.
Additional children’s play areas, secure swimming pools and water slides, function shelters for private functions, additional braai areas and areas where public-private partnership activities could be situated, were positioned and designed.
A circulation route was developed, including one-way systems and a new exit to assist with congestion on busy days.
An ecological plan was developed for the rehabilitation and conservation of natural areas in the resort, while demarcating manicured areas for recreation purposes. An interpretive walking trail was developed with interactive stopping points along the route.
