If you want to get involved with the revival of Florida Lake, Johannesburg City Parks and Zoo (JCPZ) is giving the community an opportunity to apply for funding on proposals.

This project aims to give Florida Lake a facelift because it has been sitting idle, dormant and unused for a number of years now, when it can add much needed value to the quality of life of the residents.

The public should submit proposals which must be sustainable and innovative from legally registered organisations, including community-based organisations that are interested in partnering with JCPZ in the revival of the lake.
