Hello all,

I am sure some of you know of Groenkloof Nature Reserve in Pta, there is not only a 4x4 trial, but also fantastic mtb and walking / trial running routes, a really nice picnic & braai area, great stock of wildlife, nothing else like it in GP.

There has been a serious deterioration in the security situation to the point where a lot of of regulars have stopped going. Cyclists / runners / walkers getting robbed / assaulted with threats of rape and death. I am not sure if any of you in your skoros on the trials has witnessed this or know about it, but you will agree that it is fantastic public space asset. There are also rumours about it being 'developed', there has also been a recent change in management which is a part factor in this situation.

There is a petition to the Mayor going
