Thami Mnyele Heritage Park, Tembisa, Ekhurhuleni Metropolitan Council, 2007. (@US)

The Ekurhuleni Metropolitan Municipality initiated the redevelopment of an open space near the Tembisa Station. The project aimed to prepare a vision for the vacant land and to produce a development framework to regenerate the area, offer the community a place of leisure, and celebrate the life and art of Thami Mnyele, a former resident of Tembisa.

The brief requested the establishment of a Cultural Park and Narrative Centre housing exhibitions in celebration of Thami Mnyele. The proposed park is to be considered a dynamic cultural hub that serves not only the surrounding community of Thembisa but also seeks to contribute to the cultural legacy of the Ekurhuleni Municipality as a whole.
