East London’s Woodleigh, located deep in suburbia, is sheltered by tracts of parkland to the south with the Nahoon River flowing a short distance to the north. Woodleigh is a bicycle ride away from the sparkling Indian Ocean on this south-easterly section of the South African coastline.
Aside from the suburb’s close proximity to the Nahoon River and beach, Woodleigh is near to schools, shopping centres, restaurants and the city’s nightlife. The leafy James Pearce Park lies to the east, a venue popular for wedding photographs, picnics, flea markets and walking the dog.
