If you’re looking for somewhere to take your kidlet to get them out the house but you can’t be bothered to do a big adventure, here’s a really rad outing which can be done in 20 minutes or 2 hours, depending on your mood.

Ferndale Nursery is a nursery in Constantia. It’s a great nursery if you’re looking to buy a few plants and for your kids to run around, but it’s so much more than that.

Besides plants, Ferndale has loads of ducks running around that you can feed (you can buy feed there). There are some remarkable-looking chickens and other birds in a couple of aviaries. There is a play area too with a jungle gym, swings, slides and other random climbing equipment. There is also a nice little grass patch where you can chill out while your kids go wild.

And for bonus points: there’s a coffee truck where you can get your caffeine fix.
