There are many malls and convenience shops in close proximity to Erasmuskloof and if you want to shop at a Deli or enjoy upmarket cuisine or just meet up with a few friends then Castle walk centre offers all that and more. Schools and churches are in good supply and you are close enough to walking trails and golf courses for the leisure activities.
Faerie Glen Nature Reserve and its accompanying Plumbago tea garden are a welcome respite over weekends. Just to the south of Lynwood Road, this is a wonderful venue at which to sit a while and spot the odd crested barbet, canary or hammerkop. And there are a couple of hikes and biking trails to get the adrenaline flowing.
