Ullman Recreation Centre to Katherine Street, Sandton (return)
The Sandspruit flows north from its source in the area around the Wilds in Houghton. The banks of the spruit have been more highly developed than those of the Braamfontein spruit and therefore it is less practical to walk it as a whole. However there are sections of the spruit that are worth exploring and one of those is the section from Ullman Recreation centre to Katherine Street in Sandton. Ullman park and recreation centre is reached via Bowling Avenue and then into Alma Road. Safe parking is available at the centre.
The walk takes place in a public open space area and security must be taken into account while walking it. Some basic measures should be taken. Do not walk alone and try to walk in groups of 4-5 (a largish dog is a good companion as well). Leave all valuables at home. Be always vigilant and bring your attention to security guards that are often to be found along the spruit. While Joburg City parks do all they can to prevent crime, the onus is on the individual to make sure of there own safety.
