The project entailed the planning of a regional recreation resort in Soshanguve South on a site that was selected through a separate feasibility study. An old disused quarry was located on the site and was incorporated into the planning of the resort.
The layout allowed for ecological and recreational components and linked to the Klip-Kruisfontein Node and railway station with pedestrian movement past the resort.
Recreational components included an access controlled and secure water-park and swimming pool area, children’s play areas, picnic and braai facilities, private lapa structures to be rented out for functions, a team building and conference centre, an amphitheatre with stage and caretaker’s facilities.
Ecological components included the rehabilitated quarry to create a dam for public use with fishing and boating activities, stormwater management and an artificial wetland to filter water from the road before it enters the dam and the retention of natural veldgrass areas to provide a variety of habitat in the resort.
