The dams are on the site of one of the oldest "sand mines"in Cape Town. Being a working site public access is restricted to only the count times right now. Reason for doing the count is for the time (in the near future) when Consol moves their operations from this site to Atlantis.
Approximately 1 Km from Edith Stephens Nature Reserve, with Mannenberg to the east of it.
