Val de Grace is a refined eastern Pretoria suburb with nicely appointed homes amid shady trees and a few modern office complexes. Large companies such as the national roads agency, a forestry company and national Department of Tourism have all chosen to build their Green Star-rated buildings in this well wooded, spotless and convenient suburb.
Val de Grace is bordered by the Willow tree-lined Moretele River that flows northwards into the Pienaars River and gathers at several dams further upstream.
With an easy passage to the main highway, shopping malls and schools, it’s no surprise that the area is highly sought after.
Top 6 reasons to visit Val de Grace
1. The Watermeyer Park Shopping Centre in the suburb is ideal for convenience shopping, however, for more serious retail shopping, head to Menlyn Park Mall with its 275 stores, IMAX Theatre, Play Park and the world's first rooftop drive-in.
2. Visit the nearby Pioneer Museum to experience the typical Voortrekker’s way of life in the 1848-built house constructed of clay and stone and with thatched roof. Guides dressed in period costumes enlighten the visitor. The museum has a lovely grassed area to enjoy a braai (barbecue).
3. The Faerie Glen Municipal Nature Reserve is a popular hiking spot with short routes ranging from 2.5km to 4.5km in length. The reserve hosts a number of small mammals including the Cape clawless otter. Several sparkling streams criss-cross the reserve.
