Given the backdrop of our 2 000 acre indigenous parkland, it’s not surprising that sustainability is a key priority at Steyn City. Here’s what we’re doing to protect our natural heritage.

Our eco-conscious initiative

We’ve always believed that our parkland is a truly unique feature – and we’re proud that the Johannesburg Wildlife Veterinary Hospital (JWVH) agrees. Last year, the organisation selected Steyn City as a site to rehabilitate sick and injured animals before they are released into the wild, and we are extremely pleased to have already played a role in helping a number of animals of different species return to health. Recently, we have also welcomed 11 hedgehogs to the parkland; an exciting development, as these spiky little creatures play a key role in the ecosystem by controlling pest populations. It’s interesting to know that they are nocturnal foragers, and despite being land-dwellers, they’re excellent swimmers and can take to the water when they need to.

Maintaining our beautiful parkland

The tree canopies in the parkland are expanding each year, causing the lawn beneath to struggle. As a result, you may have noticed that our Landscaping team has been diligently planting more shade-tolerant plants, applying mulch, and introducing ground covers and shrubs in these areas to maintain the appeal of our beautiful green belts as our parkland matures.
