These are all wonderful ways to spend one’s time – but what if you could do all of this, and more, in one destination? In fact, you can – at Steyn City’s City Centre residents can spend their leisure time participating in a myriad of outdoor activities in one of the largest parks imaginable.
City Centre was envisaged as a development that could rival the very best addresses in the world. How? It’s simple, really – by offering homes far superior to any other apartment development. In terms of space – all bedrooms are large enough to fit a king-size bed, the ceilings are high and luxury fittings are standard, such as Blu-line integrated kitchens with Gaggenau appliances and Kohler sanitaryware, as are double glazing and air conditioning. But, more than this, it’s the convenience of City Centre that truly sets it apart.
Jogging on the 45km well-lit promenade, day or night
After surveying the world’s best‑loved leisure spots, Steyn City Properties set out to replicate the activities people typically enjoy; then make them all available to residents at the City Centre. The only difference is people living here don’t have to venture more than a few steps from their front door to enjoy MTB or running – even at night, thanks to 45km of floodlit promenade – outdoor exercise stations, tennis, horse-riding, golf, swimming, birdwatching or fishing.
They can even have a day of beach-style fun without packing suitcases or crossing any toll roads, thanks to Steyn City’s 300m lagoon, where kayaking, SUP boarding, water slides and pedalos are all on the menu for the day’s entertainment, alongside a stop at the Laguna kiosk for refreshing gelato.
There’s even a choice of restaurants and coffee shops – so, whatever mood you find yourself in, there is a way to express it.

Spoilt for choice
Offering so many options is very much a trademark of City Centre and, indeed, Steyn City itself. It dovetails neatly with another cornerstone of the lifestyle here: convenience. Even before the onset of the Covid-19 pandemic, Steyn City Properties realised the value of having everything you need, when you need it – without navigating jostling lanes of traffic or long queues.
The sense of ease that accompanies such a lifestyle is amplified by the City Centre’s setting in a 2,000 acre indigenous parkland, complete with an outdoor sculpture park and an abundance of birdlife and fauna – and, of course, the very best security ensuring that all amenities can be enjoyed with total peace of mind. The strategic location of the development – between the key hubs of Midrand and Johannesburg, in the latter’s rapidly growing ‘new north’ – is yet another plus.
It is highly unlikely that South Africa will become home to another development of this size and scale – which is why it’s no exaggeration to say that an investment in Steyn City is a once‑in-a-lifetime opportunity.
Given the scope of this offering, Steyn City Properties may be considered well on its way to achieving its admittedly lofty ambition: to see Steyn City recognised as the world’s best lifestyle estate; a blueprint for urban living.
