The People's Plan was used to start a conversation about what people would like to see at Princess Vlei. These are some of the ideas from the original plan and later conversations.
Fynbos rehabilitation Centre for rehabilitating our green spaces To co-ordinate all our efforts to dress the Princess by planting fynbos and trees, preparing soil, and cleaning litter; and to help people restore and beautify other open spaces in our communities
Cultural and environmental education centre A place to learn about our history, our Khoisan heritage, our wetland ecology, and all the living plants and animals at Princess Vlei.
Khoisan memorial To honour our South Africa’s first people, and teach us how they lived
Outdoor market For locally produced craft, fresh vegetables and food.
Facilities Specialised facilities for baptisms, sailing and other user groups
Braai and picnic areas Upgraded areas to enjoy braais and picnics with families
New play park for children An eco-friendly sturdy play park where our children can get strong and healthy while having fun, and outdoor gym equipment for the young at heart.
Ecoducts Bridges so that pedestrians, cyclists and animals can cross the M5 motorway safely
