Baakens River

The Baakens River Valley - is the original greenbelt parkland of the city of Port Elizabeth, allowing local residents a healthy and beautiful outdoors destination. The Lion Roars Foundation has been actively involved in the rehabilitation of this valley, along with WESSA (Wildlife and Environment Society of South Africa) and certain like-minded corporates. There is much work to be done on the river health and pollution thereof, and the community is encouraged to participate in the Lion Roars Foundation “Save Our Valley Family Fun Days”.
