Welcome to King's Park

King's Park

Opened by the Prince of Wales in 1925, King's Park boasts over 4,000 beautiful rose bushes, and is thus well placed as Bloemfontein literally means 'flower fountain' and is often referred to as the 'city of roses'. King's Park is also home to the Bloemfontein Zoo and its fascinating 'liger' (an African lion crossed with a Bengal tiger). There is an arts and crafts market at King's Park on the first Saturday of each month, another must for visitors.

Information & Facts

South Africa has 11 official languages, including Afrikaans, English, Xhosa, Zulu and Sotho. English is widely spoken.

South Africa's currency is the Rand (ZAR), which is divided into 100 cents. Money can be exchanged at banks, bureaux de change and the larger hotels. ATMs are widely available (there is a daily limit for cash withdrawals) and major international credit cards are widely accepted, except in petrol stations where cash is required. Visitors should be vigilant when drawing cash from ATMs, as con artists are known to operate there. Travellers cheques and some foreign currencies are accepted at larger hotels and shops, but commission is charged, otherwise all commercial banks will exchange them.

Opening Times
The park is open 8am to 5pm daily
Local time is GMT +2.
