About the listing

The Old Park Station dates from 1896 and opened to passengers in 1897. This makes it one of the oldest surviving structures in Johannesburg, giving it exceptional historical value. It is also one of only two station structures in the region surviving from this period, giving it a high degree of rarity. It was commissioned by the Zuid Afrikaansche Republiek and operated by the Netherlands South African Railway Company (NZASM), which later became Transnet. The structure has international significance because it was designed by Dutch architect and civil engineer Jacob Frederik Klinkhamer and was fabricated in the Netherlands. It was the central station on the Rand Steam Tram suburban railway serving the region and is now one of only two stations surviving from this railway line, the other being Krugersdorp Station.

Old Park Station has been assessed as having Exceptional historical, technological and landmark significance and High aesthetic, representational, group and relationship, social and cultural significance. Taking into account its condition, incomplete state and rarity, it is considered that overall Old Park Station is a heritage resource of Exceptional significance.

Today
The Station has been transformed into a Unique location, and Sentimental Events venue located in the heart of Johannesburg.
