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'll conceptualised and designed with great educational as well as recreational value for the family. Lovely children's play parks for different ages and large rolling grass areas. The horticultural aspects are well documented and despite the large volume of people it was relatively clean. Picnic facilities in various places. A great asset to Cape Town.

Beautifully kept, this vast green park and educational centre is a real gem. A great place to picnic with two play areas- one for toddlers and one for older children. Popular for children's parties on the weekends so if you're looking for peace and quiet, go for a stroll during the week.

Lovely parkland layout including ponds, ducks, water flowers, beautiful grass verges. plus climbing areas for children who can be observed by concerned parents from their picnic blankets. Beautifully kept, cleanliness, some wonderful flowers and trees, it is a joy and a stone;s through from Green Point / 3 Anchor Bay / Waterfront. And a great area to celebrate a picnic... More

I love the urban park. It's on my cycling route most mornings. Amazing to be able to wheel about there and smell the fynbos and see the ducks on the lake at the golf course. A tranquil place that's great for families, runners, cyclists, walkers etc.

I thought it very worthwhile, especially the biodiversity display and explanation. We need more parks like this al over the country. It is both educational and fun/relaxing.

We got some great sandwhiches from Giovanni's in Green Point and headed for the park. What a well designed and executed park, walkways with interesting vegetation, water features and big spaces of grass for kids to run around on. The park has convenient benches and tables for your impromtu pic nic too.

Thank you! Enjoyed the walk. The park is safe, clean and educational,it is close to the stadium and across the road is the ocean. Lots of activities for children, and just a nice place to chill on a warm day. There's a labyrinth for those who enjoy a bit of meditation, contemplation or personal growth. Bring your camera along, good... More

Greenpoint Urban Park is a nice small little urban park very close to Cape Town stadium and the ocean. It is actually somewhat difficult to find - we had to drive around for a few minutes to find the parking space - but once located it is easy and safe to move around. (Security guards greet you when you enter.)... More
