||Coordinates 'S25 50 347 E028 14 363
These 16 hectares of natural, open, rocky plains in Pierre van Ryneveld have been zoned as an open green area that is protected by the Nature Conservation Subsection of the City of Tshwane. This high-lying area still sprouts reasonably preserved indigenous plants that are typical of the Bankveld vegetation type. The veld, also known as rocky highveld grassveld, is threatened by urban development, industrialisation, mining, alien plants and, to a lesser degree, agriculture. Numerous bird species and some small mammals and reptiles can be spotted in this nature area.
