What Are You Looking For?
Bedfordview is first and foremost a family-orientated suburb. It’s a great place for kiddies of all ages to hang out and have some fun. There are lots of activities for the whole family to get stuck into as well. Whether your brood is the movie going kind or prefer the outdoors, there should be something to keep you entertained. Bring the little ones along to Bedford Centre to spend the day bouncing at Jump Gravity, watching a movie at NuMetro cinemas or tucking into a gourmet milkshake at Chevy Lane.
Eastgate Shopping Centre
The piazza at Eastgate Shopping Centre is ideal for kid-friendly Friday night fun. The open air play area is the ideal spot for the little ones to run around while you enjoy a fabulous dinner at one of the mall’s top restaurants. We love Mozambik for their Afro-Porto fusion cuisine and outdoor kiddies’ play area. Eastgate Shopping Centre is also home to the only Ster-Kinekor IMAX Theatre on the East Rand. Bring the brood along for epic 3-D adventures and luxury cinema experiences.
