The 54-hectare tranquil Settler's Park, which lies along the banks of the Baakens River, is located in the heart of the city.
The Settlers Park Nature Reserve has three entrances and may be accessed via How Avenue, just off Park Drive; Chelmsford Avenue, just off Target Kloof or from Third Avenue, Walmer.

The park offers recommended short walks that may commence from any of these entrances.

Settlers Park facilities include a flower display house, a Marquette of the 1820 Settlers' Statue, indigenous flora, rock pools with stepping-stones and grassed areas ideal for picnicking.

The Park is rich in bird life, small buck and other fauna as well as offering an 8km walking trail through the Baakens River Valley, named The Guinea Fowl Trail.
