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.

An oasis of calm in the city, Greenpoint Park and Biodiversity Garden is a fantastic place to go for a walk, run, picnic or simply read a book. The Biodiversity Garden is very informative; I wish this kind of project could be replicated in other cities.

This Park is totally awesome. I love that there is a play area specifically for under-6s, one for older kids and then all sorts of beautiful spaces and places within the Park!

The walkways were so easily taken while the new beds and gardens were beautifully finished for visitors to enjoy both flora and fauna. The waterareas were well contained and not a danger for young children. A very refreshing venue for a family outing, with no possibility of crime. It can be easily found beside the new rugby stadium at Greenpoint.

We were there for a prize=giving of the SA Scouts. Very impressive. After the presentation we walked all over the park. In some areas there has been a lot of work done to make it special. We quite astounded at how big the area was and how many people were using it for pleasure. Brilliant idea.

What a lovely place to relax and spend some time and it adds to the bit of nature within the city. With the soccer stadium next to it the green is a nice contrast next to the concrete jungle.

During my visit to Cape Town, I stayed in Green Point off of Main Rd and walked almost daily over to the lighthouse and the promenade, stopping along the way to bird watch and stroll the garden, which really is informative and has fun statues. The park really is great for joggers and those seeking a quiet spot to read... More

We watched the stadium being build amounts all the hype of 2010 word cup soccer. We all vaguely know about an Eco park being developed, but wow I'm blown away. The park links Moullie point and the beach through the park to the stadium and green point restaurants and gym. It's and awesome concept. Educational as well as relexing. It's... More

Been wanting to go to this attraction for a while, last time ran out of time trying to find the place. The Virgin Active is a landmark. This attraction is free and amazing. This is a great family place especially if you have small children. You need to either go early or later for the "second sitting". The operating hours... More

It is a well kept, clean park. It caters for children who want to play on jungle gyms, and play games, also a kids gym for exercise and to build core strength.
