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.

Lovely park with a contemporary feel to it. Ideal for late afternoon walks & ideal for families looking for a safe area for kids to run free.

Picnics in the park, long walks and children playing on the grass and at the urban jungle gym. A fantastic, semi hidden gem at Green Point. Lovely fresh water points along the way. Runners jogging past us with a wave and a smile. Put your troubles away and take a meander through the park. Not to be missed.

Wow a must for families the park offers picnic area , park all in one I would advise going earlier if you dont like crowds because the park can get very busy over weekends . I normally like early mornings more space and less people . Enjoy

This is in a quiet secluded area where the rarest animals can be found. They have interesting plants and you can move at your own pace as there is no one to distract you from the peace and quiet.

A much needed, gorgeous park close to the stadium and city centre. Lovely for walks, wheelchair friendly (although they do not supply loan wheelchairs (! ) - pity. Once the trees are larger and offer more shade, it will become even more popular. Well kept.

This park is opposite our national football stadium. It is a child friendly part. No really what I would call a sight to visit. There are more exciting things to see!

A really special and relaxing place to visit and just few minutes from the city center. Great for kids and for a bit of exercise. Do a walk through the garden and also along the coast towards Sea Point.

The scenery is absolutely amazing! I love to take my family there for picnics and it is situated conveniently in the middle of town. It is a little on the full side with locals also enjoying the place. The toilets weren't as bad as i expected a public toilet to be and the smelling garden was absolutely amazing. Can't wait...

Saturday morning was as beautiful as ever in Cape Town, a crisp bright day with warm sun, but the winter kept the temperature on check. Wonderful walk in the Green Point biodiversity park from the East Gate to West Gate to the light house at Mouille Point.
