Our Favourite Cosmos Pictures From Delta Park


Tucked away on the cusp of Blairgowrie and Victory Park, about 10km northwest of the city centre, lies Delta Park. The park is a peaceful and spacious area of some 104 hectares – one of the city’s biggest ‘green lungs’. Its long walking paths are frequented by weekend runners and horse riders. Delta Park is a little more beautiful than usual during the months of March and April because the cosmos are in full bloom. It’s lovely to watch an abundance of pink and white flowers all over. Here are some pictures of cosmos captured at this Joburg park.

A Daisy Delight in a Kaleidoscope of Colours

Cosmos flowers were introduced to South Africa during the Anglo-Boer War in tainted horse feed. Today, a variety of cosmos bloom in parts of South Africa, and these pink and white blossoms and still remain a popular attraction. Autumn is cosmos season, so expect to see fields (more like seas) of purple, pink and white – it’s one of the most beautiful things you’ll ever see. In Johannesburg we’re particularly blessed with cosmos.

Delta Park must have been a paradise for this furry friend!

Cosmos Blooms Frame the City 

Even though this image was captured last year, during the peak cosmos bloom, it still manages to capture the essence of Johannesburg’s beauty. The vibrant sea of cosmos flowers in the foreground frames a stunning glimpse of the city skyline, creating a captivating contrast between nature’s vibrant display and the urban landscape. It’s a beautiful reminder of Johannesburg’s unique character, where flourishing natural spaces coexist with a bustling metropolis.
