Ullmann Park Update
On Thursday 17 October concerned residents attended a meeting at
Ernest Ullmann Park to consider the future of the Park and its
Recreation Centre. The City of Johannesburg has a Draft plan to privatise
the Norscot Manor Recreation Centre.
The report mentions various other parks including
Ernest Ullmann Park
in Wendywood and Morningside Manor. Our "world class" city has no
money for the maintenance of parks in well-to-do areas, and leaves
everything to the residents. There is now concern that, not
content with spending nothing on the parks, the City wants them to
generate income too, and will consequently lease
or even sell off parks. There was much discussion and several
appeals to the community to be proactive before the City springs
something on us. Finally it was decided to put together a
committee to make proposals for the future of the Park. To join or
contribute to the committee, e-mail
Jenny Rahme or
Syd Land. Read the
Sandton Chronicle report here.

Double Restaurant Review by

***** Chez Girard, Naturally
Yours Wellness Centre, 453 Main Road cor Culross, Bryanston
The pure joy of finding this restaurant open! More importantly,
obtaining all the contact details and opening hours, as they are not displayed
on the door. Chez Girard is open Monday to Wednesday for breakfast and
lunch. From Thursday to Saturday, they also do dinner and are very popular
so booking is essential.
This little restaurant seats about forty people inside and outside. As
ever, Christian and his staff are welcoming, attentive and friendly. The
breakfast menu looked good and interesting, however, as it was nearly lunchtime,
I decided on a salad. Specifically the Spicy Calamari and Prawn one, which
was so good! The contrasting flavours of chilli and sour cream blended
well with the perfectly cooked prawn and calamari. The salad ingredients
were fresh and colourful. I enjoyed it with a glass of good white wine,
savouring every moment.
There is always pleasure in renewing an old acquaintance.

**** Luca's Pizzeria at Rivonia
Crossing 2, 3 Achter Road corner Witkoppen Road, Paulshof
A desire for an outside lunch took us out again on Sunday, this time to
Luca's, which we had not visited since it moved from the old Morningside
Shopping Centre. It is a friendly venue, deceptively larger than it looks
from the outside. What was obvious is that it is a well-attended venue
with people coming to celebrate anniversary and take advantage of the children's
playground (which is supervised), to let their children have a good time as
When I saw fresh river trout on the menu, my mind turned away from pizza!
So it was one trout and one Padovana pizza that were chosen, together with
Delaire Graaf Rose and Appletizer! The Delaire Graaf Rose is a lovely pink
wine, which went well with the trout. The trout was good, but a little
drier than I really like. The pizza was declared excellent. I can
also recommend the coffee!
Good service and a pleasant venue to while away a sunny afternoon.
