The Kensington Jacaranda Walk 2020

The Kensington Jacaranda Walk 2020

The Annual Kensington Jacaranda Walk event departed from the 115 year old Kensington Sports Club, into the hilly suburb and streets lined with Jacaranda and Oak trees planted some 120 years ago by William Nelson, plant nursery owner. There are over 100kms of trees planted in Kensington. Max Langerman, a Johannesburg Town Councillor established Kensington in 1897, and many historical architectural structures and landmarks form the heritage of this stately suburb.

    1. Thank you so much Caroline. Very nice hearing from you. These past few months have been hectic, hopefully the world will learn how to manage/ overcome COVID. I agree the flowering trees look beautiful… Each season is special particularly spring. Take care Caroline.
