A Gentle Reminder: Respect and Responsibility at the Benoni Bunny Park

At the enchanting expanse of the Benoni Bunny Park, a verdant haven cherished by families and animal aficionados, comes an important message for all our visitors. As chroniclers of the park’s legacy and advocates for the harmony within it, we gently remind our guests of the essential guidelines that ensure the health and happiness of our animal friends and park goers alike.

Heedful Harmony with Nature

Tania Forrest-Smith, the founder of the Bunny Park Rescue Group, appeals to the kindness of our visitors, urging that any intention to feed our animals be accompanied by consultation with our knowledgeable staff. This heartfelt plea follows an unfortunate incident involving a sheep that fell ill due to ingestion of inappropriate food, highlighting the significance of mindful interaction with our park’s residents.

Safeguarding Our Shared Space

Ward 27 councillor Lornette Joseph echoes this sentiment, stressing the importance of abiding by the park’s regulations. These rules are not mere suggestions but are woven into the fabric of our shared space to ensure that the delicate balance between human enjoyment and animal welfare is maintained. Activities such as swimming or fishing in the water are discouraged to preserve the integrity and safety of our environment.

“Our cherished grounds are open for all to revel in,” affirms Councillor Joseph. “We cherish the times you create here, surrounded by nature’s bounty, and we trust our guests to extend the same love and respect to the park and its inhabitants.”

The Art of Feeding

Tania further elaborates on the discoveries made through the medical examination of the sheep, reinforcing the importance of regulated feeding. At our kiosk, visitors can purchase suitable pellets for the bunnies, but should be aware that not all park animals share the same dietary needs or restrictions. Before offering any snacks or treats, please ensure they comply with the dietary guidelines set by our park.

A Playground of Learning and Respect

The park strides beyond being a mere petting zoo; it is an educational playground where respect for animal autonomy is paramount. With the initiative of community members like Tania, who dedicates her efforts to creating engaging play areas for the goats, the park continuously evolves to meet the needs of its animal inhabitants.

Cleanliness and Care

The park’s beauty is mirrored in its cleanliness, an aspect that each visitor plays a role in upholding. Littering poses a grave risk to the park’s wildlife, and we implore our visitors to dispose of waste responsibly. Creating a space where memories are forged with family must be coupled with the preservation of our park’s cleanliness and safety.

Safety and Security Measures

We are proud to maintain a secure environment for all within the park, with vigilant security officers present at all times. As we navigate the times, visitors are reminded to comply with health regulations by wearing masks, respecting physical distancing, and adhering to the recommendations displayed on the signs around the park, generously sponsored by Mission Print in Northmead.

Adhering to Metro By-Laws

Metro spokesperson Zweli Dlamini reiterates the importance of observing the regulations set forth by the EMM. Available on the metro’s website, these by-laws are designed to protect our parks and ensure a pleasant experience for all. Since 2019, a team of animal nutritionists from the University of Pretoria has been collaborating with the park to analyze and define the best dietary practices for our cherished animals, categorizing food into good foods, treats, and those that should be avoided completely.

By embracing these rules, visitors contribute to the vibrant ecosystem that is the Benoni Bunny Park, where every creature can thrive and every person can marvel at the wonders around them.

The park, conveniently located on Pretoria Road, is open Monday to Sunday from 09:00 to 16:00, extending a gracious invitation to all to come and partake in the magic within, responsibly and with mindful hearts.
