Waterfall offers residents who would like to keep fit many indoor and outdoor opportunities to do so, starting from the moment they step out their door.

While the Jukskei River that meanders through Waterfall has inspired several walking, running and biking trails, those who use them can catch their breath and absorb the beauty and tranquillity of their surroundings at one of the benches or bird hides situated along the river. Such an excursion might lead them to one of the clubhouses on the development, each featuring a fully equipped gym, or perhaps the double storey gymnasium at the Country Village Estate Clubhouse, which boasts an indoor rock climbing wall, heated lap pool, two squash courts, cardio training area and general toning circuit as well as Pilates, aerobics, yoga, Zumba and spinning classes. This particular clubhouse also has tennis courts and overlooks a majestic lake where non-motorised watersports facilities are available.

Those who wish to venture a little further afield for their workout, will find a fully fledged Virgin Active at the Waterfall Lifestyle Centre, right next door to Bounce Trampoline Park.

In terms of recreational outdoor facilities, Waterfall has lots to offer besides the lake. Golfers will be happy to hear that there is a professionally designed mini golf facility housing 2 greens and 3 T-boxes near Waterfall Valley’s Clubhouse where they can practice their chip and putt skills. And if they need some extra tuition, World of Golf is only a few minutes’ drive away. Apart from this, the estates on Waterfall feature many play parks for children as well as catch-and-release dams, where anglers can fish to their heart’s content.

Unfortunately, no matter how healthy our lifestyle, we all get ill at some point. So, when you or your family members need professional healthcare, it is reassuring to know that there is a state-of-the-art private hospital around the corner, offering sound medical advice, world-class knowledge and excellent service. The Netcare Waterfall City Hospital features 24-hour emergency care, 200 beds and consulting rooms for more than 60 specialists, in addition to an on-site Bariatric Surgery Centre. Planned with the future in mind, this hospital will be able to accommodate growth of up to 300 beds.

Retirees living in Waterfall will be able to make use of the services of two trained nurses based at Waterfall Valley and Hills respectively, who make house calls when required. In addition to 24-hour emergency healthcare, Waterfall Valley and Hills boast a comprehensive frail care facility, with specialist medical equipment, meals, cleaning and full-time or part-time caregivers for residents who need assisted living services.
