About This Walk

A walk around the Glenwood area, from Davenport Square, on to the NSA. Bulwer Park, possibly Pigeon valley if safe, back through Umbilo to take in some of the awesomeness of the Green Camp Gallery and back to Davenport Square, a round trip of about 3km.

“Glenwood – one of Durban’s oldest suburbs that extends from its colonial-style mansions near the university down to lower-income Umbilo Road, recently popular because of its proximity to the Durban CBD.

Glenwood has entered an era of suburban revival mostly due to the hive of activity evident on Davenport, Bulwer and Ferguson Roads, where antique shops, the KZNSA Gallery – which includes a gallery that exhibits contemporary visual culture, a shop, a café and a training art programme – and various little shops, restaurants, and cafés have attracted a loyal following.

Davenport Road, in particular, has benefited from the restoration of old Victorian style houses into trendy eateries and boutiques and looks set to rival Florida Road, although comparing them with Melville in Johannesburg is probably closer to the mark.

Glenwood has a neighbourly vibe and the sedate houses, tree-lined streets and easy access to the centre of Durban make this suburb an ideal place to stay. Its residents tend to be academics, artists, designers and the like who have given the neighbourhood, together with Davenport Road, a distinctly ‘trendy’ vibe.” – SA Venues


The route:  Davenport Square to NSA, Bulwer Park walking along to Lytton Grove, Bulwer Rd towards Saviour Café. Along Ferguson Rd, to Esther Robers, into Essex Rd to Umbilo. Swing by Green Camp, walk towards Helen Joseph Rd (Davenport) and back to Davenport Square.
