MOGALE CITY offers something for everyone, from town life with modern shopping malls, to countryside hideaways.

In addition, there are plenty of activities on offer for all its residents, from arts, culture and heritage to sport and recreation.

Mogale City has a number of libraries, a city museum, loads of sporting facilities, hiking and riding trails, and places of interest to visit.

For the outdoors enthusiast there is an 18-hole golf course, a number of dams and several reserves for game viewing, not to mention the Crocodile River Ramble and the Magalies Meander.

The river ramble – its full official name is the Crocodile River Arts and Crafts Ramble – offers the perfect opportunity for a family outing. More than 100 gifted artists and craftspeople show off their wares, often in their studios, and original paintings, sculptures and art objects can be picked up for a bargain.

A tea garden provides a welcome spot to sit down and discuss the arts and crafts, all in the beautiful rustic surrounds of the Crocodile River.

The village of Magaliesburg in the Magaliesberg mountains, is at the centre of the Magalies Meander, which is a collection of artist studios, farm stalls and restaurants. There is a wide variety of accommodation on offer as well as sporting activities, such as rock climbing, horse riding, fly fishing, hot air ballooning and microlighting.

With the two rambles in the area, it is a given that arts and culture is also a prominent feature. There is a large number of art studios, and many dance groups and musicians have made their home in Mogale City.

For those with an interest in all things historical, the museum is a treasure trove. There is also the tour of the first gold mine and a trip on the steam train.

And then there are the many historical sites around Mogale City, starting with one of its most attractive buildings – the civic centre. The Earl of Selbourne, High Commissioner of the Transvaal and Orange Free State, unveiled the foundation stone of the original building in 1907.

Outside this beautiful building is a statue of Chief Mogale, who once ruled over the region.

There is also the JG Strijdom arch bust, designed by JH Labuschagne. It was unveiled on 16 December 1966 by Susan Strijdom. It stands on gold-bearing rock. The arch was designed by T Pitout.

Mogale City was touched by the great wars that rocked South Africa and the world, from the Anglo Boer War to the Second World War. In a number of ways, the city keeps alive the memory of those who died. More than 800 women and children were buried in the Concentration Camp Cemetery during the Boer War.

The names of those who died in action during the two world wars were added to the cenotaph in 1975. The first stone of the memorial was laid on 20 May 1922. It was unveiled by Sir Abe Bailey on 15 July 1922.

And Memorial Avenue, which runs from Paardekraal to the hospital, commemorates those who died during the First World War.
