Springside Nature Reserve is found in the midst of suburban Hillcrest.

Springside is a wonderful 21 hectare reserve that lies on both sides of a little stream along which there is a lovely little walk that takes one through sections of forest.

Aside from its obvious value to the residents of Hillcrest, a space in which to restore oneself and commune with nature, Springside Nature Reserve is also home to a variety of little mammals, indigenous flowers and a series of wetlands, grasslands, scarp and swamp forest that protect the biodiversity of the area.

Springside has two hiking trails that often form part of guided walks where the local conservancy projects can share their environmental knowledge with everyone who wishes to join them.

The Springside reserve is also often the site of children's environmental holiday fun where children have discovered about crabs and other creatures, or the mysteries uncovered by microscopes.

There are picnic and braai facilities and the bird life in the reserve is beautiful.
