The Johannesburg City Parks and Zoo annual facility fee increase will this year be 5.8%. Residents are advised to consult the accompanying table for more information on the fee increase.

JOHANNESBURG City Parks and Zoo will be increasing its facility fees, with effect from Tuesday 1 July, to continue to maintain the City's facilities to a high standard.

This 5.8% increase will apply to City's cemeteries and crematoria, parks, open spaces, nature reserves, and the Johannesburg Zoo until July 2015.

Increased use of Joburg's facilities

According to a mayoral committee report, city residents are making more use of facilities managed by Johannesburg City Parks and Zoo.

According to the report, "This increase in usage, especially the commercial events, created the need to do more regular clean-ups … after events. This meant an increase in costs to maintain the facilities."

Price increases

General admission for adults to the Joburg Zoo will increase from R61 to R65 starting on Tuesday, while the children's admission price will increase from R38 to R40.

Admission prices for seniors (60 years old and up) are increasing from R38 to R40.

Cemetery charges for council-owned burial grounds will also be increasing due to escalating fuel prices and extended burner use during cremation.

The general cost of burying an adult will increase from R1879 to R1988, while the cost for burying a child will increase from R939 to R993.

Here is a comprehensive list of new fees for all Johannesburg City Parks and Zoo facilities:
