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. « less

We've been wanting to visit this since it has been established, and were so glad that we got to it eventually last week. What a beautifully designed green area offering visitors an indigenous haven, abundant birdlife and several peaceful water features- as well as information on all of this provided in a creative, interactive and often fun and engaging way....

It wasn't just the kids who loved this spot. It's a real gem in the urban bustle with great play areas and cute walking paths with well signed plants.

Relatively well maintained, lots of space, great setting. The council should make more areas like this around Cape Town.

Fantastic place to escape from the hussel and bussel of the city. wonderful for good family fun and picnics. Nice play and fun area's for kids. Or just stroll around taking in the scenery. A stone throw away from restaurants and the ocean.

This beautifully landscaped park with water, mountains and indigenous flora is a well known secret amongst the locals. It is very well maintained and well used by walkers, runners, families, picnickers, etc...truly a little piece of paradise and some unusual photo opportunities with the ocean just across the road.

My favourite park in Cape Town! Think outdoor gyms, stone mazes, soccer fields, large garden showcasing indigenous plants & medicinal herbs, wetland bird watching and more...! A true gem and a short walk away from Mouille Point lighthouse, with seaside bars & cafes for sundowner drinks. This park is perfect for all ages, I will be packing many picnics this... More
