|Welkom's reputation as a garden city is endorsed by its spacious green landskaped parks and gardens and its shady tree-lined suburban streets, which form a striking contrast with the large, stark mine dumps and agricultural acres encompassing the city.
||Nature conservation enjoys a high degree of priority and great value
is placed on preserving the natural vegetation, which adds to the beuty
of the city and of its many pans.||Trouble-free community is the result of dynamic town planning. Neither
traffic lights nor parkingmeters are to be found and an almost uninterrupted
traffic flow is created by means of well planned traffic circles and wide
double lanes, while adequate provision has been made for parking.|
