Park Station: gateway to Africa
Published on the JDA website, 23 May 2014.
Johannesburg’s Park Station is a hive of pan-African activity as travellers from across the continent hop on and off the many buses passing through it each day. Now the area is set to become a cultural and transit precinct, reminiscent of New York’s bustling Grand Central Station.
Joburg’s answer to an African-inspired take on Grand Central Station and Times Square in New York will soon be a reality with the newly revamped Park Station Precinct.
According to the City’s Executive Mayor Parks Tau, the Precinct will capture the public’s imagination through the Johannesburg Development Agency’s (JDA) development work in the inner city.
He stated a strong need to capitalise on the welcoming role that Park Station plays since it’s “the gateway to Africa” and stressed the significance of showcasing African food and culture.
