Congratulations to Johannesburg City Parks and Zoo for scooping two awards at this year’s Cannes Lions Festival in France.
The Cannes Lion Festival, honours the best creative work of the year across the spectrum of branded communication in the world, and was held on the 24th of June 2017.

This is a remarkable achievement proving that JCPZ and the City of
Johannesburg can compete with the best in the world.
The department of Community Development, which oversees the entity, is delighted with this achievement as it contributes to one of the City’s priorities of providing services with pride to the people of Joburg.
Well done to the management and entire team of JCPZ. You have put
Joburg as one of the destinations of choice through this achievement.
Furthermore, two of the JCPZ parks were recently crowned with four awards for “benchmark and highest industry standard.
The two parks – Boston Park and the upgraded Westdene Park – both received two awards, at the annual award ceremony of the South African Landscapers Institute (SALI) where the best in the landscaping construction industry is announced.
