Constantia to Sea – by Foot

Princess VleiA proposal to develop a walking trail along the river corridor between Constantia and Princess Vlei is on the cards. Ward 62 councillor Elizabeth Brunette recently attended a walk along this route organised by Local Governments for Sustainability Partnership (ICLEI). The trail starts at the Constantia green belt and ends at the vlei.

Brunette says the organisation has various projects across Africa aimed at enhancing natural areas. In Cape Town ICLEI has the Source to Sea River Corridor project.

“It has been going for a few years and is to link Elephant’s Eye in Constantiaberg to the sea and to Princess Vlei,” she says.
