Hillside Dams Conservancy

Hillside Dams is a popular leisure retreat that provides a family-friendly location for people of all ages to unwind. It is located in Hillside Bulawayo and covers a wide area. At Hillside dams, people can just relax and engage in a variety of activities. For nature lovers, it is the ideal location for nature walks, birding, cycling and a tour of the aloe gardens. Every Friday morning the Conservancy club has a fun walk for senior citizens around the property. This activity has grown in popularity and sees many people attending. There is a lot of space for individuals and groups to have picnics, braais, team building activities, games and so forth. There is a large campground which was largely used by boy scouts, it is being restored and will open to the public in the near future. For families with young children, there is a play area which has children’s rides and swings. 

There is a restaurant on the property as well which serves drinks and meals. Hillside dam is also the location of the Waterfront, another picturesque picnic spot. Here people can enjoy some fishing, zip lining, canoeing etc. Hillside dam is open all year round and guests are required to pay a nominal fee for entry. This municipal owned facility is playing a big part in the conservation of the environment and giving residents and visitors a safe quiet place for recreation. The Conservancy is a non-profit organisation which is run by volunteers who are responsible for the upkeep of the landscape.
