After Moms of Blairgowrie became popular, many moms from the surrounding neighbourhoods started to request to join the group. It was evident that there was definitely a place for another local mom’s group for the surrounding ‘Parks’ areas.

And so, I started Park Moms, so that the moms living in the Parks could have a space of their own, to chat, share and support each other. It has grown into a uber aweseome group with over 800 local members.

To join, all you need to be is a mom, living in the Parks areas in Johannesburg. It has expanded quite a lot due to popular demand (and a recent poll) but in order to keep it local, the areas it includes are:

  • Craighall Park
  • Parkhurst
  • Parktown North
  • Parkview
  • Victory park
  • Parkwood
  • Dunkeld
  • Dunkeld West

The group has been extended to:

  • Craighall
  • Hyde Park
  • Saxonwold
  • Westcliff
  • Forest Town

Here are some other rules…

  1. It’s for residents of the above areas only – and only one per mom. You’re only a local resident in one suburb. Apologies, if your kids go to local schools but you aren’t a resident, you don’t qualify.
  2. Moms and moms to be only (sorry no grandparents and aunts and cousins
  3. Your kids need to still be in school (i.e. under 18)
  4. Answer all 3 questions to be added (truthfully)
  5. Advertising:
    1. Advertise your second-hand baby goods any day of the week, other goods within moderation
    2. No scouting for work, properties or fitness shake type ads
    3. Keep your business advertising to Fridays only and please keep it reasonable
    4. We don’t want to see the same advert every week and we don’t want to be bombarded with more than one post from you on a Friday
    5. Support your local moms
  6. No abuse, shaming, bitchiness, labelling, defamation of character
  7. No anti vaccination talk (sorry, just no)
  8. If you ask to join another moms group and you have moved, or live outside of the local area, you will be removed/added to the correct group
  9. No ‘bumping’ posts
  10. Don’t lie about where you live. If you’re not local, please start up your own mom’s group, I’m sure there are local moms out there who want a community just as much as you do.
