Type: Parks, Outdoors
Owner description: The urban park was one of the legacy projects of the FIFA World Cup 2010. The area is adjacent to the Cape Town Stadium and has stunning views of both the stadium as well as Signal Hill. Lovely place to bring the kids to excercise or to have a picnic. It is also a learning experience for young and old. The garden is separated into ‘People and Plants’, ‘Wetlands’ and ‘Discovering Biodiversity’. The park hours are from 7 to 7 with visible security.

A wonderful space not far from the Waterfront, and the CBD, and a mere hop and skip to the promenade for a seascape worth the walk. The integration of old and new, of Heritage and Culture interwoven with Nature's eco-system and its vast biodiversity is an educational journey on its own - with free access for all to enjoy. Well...

Well done Cape Town for creating a beautiful public garden of a very high standard. This green space really has something for everyone. A park for the kids, a quiet spot in the shade of the trees and the informative biodiversity garden. It is also a great space for a bit of exercise. I am considering a Christmas morning picnic...

For a couple of hours relaxation, we always enjoy a visit to the Green Point Park, be it an early morning walk through or an afternoon experiencing the wide variety of fynbos and indigenous plants. An ideal spot for young children to enjoy the creative play equipment and just to run around and have fun. A must visit!

While still an awesome place to spend a few hours in the fresh air it is starting to lose some of the "shine" and well cared for look it had a year or more back which is such a pity! Still a beautiful place except for the people on bicycles who think they own the place late Saturday afternoon!
