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.

Very well laid out park that seems to be frequented mainly by locals; dog walking allowed on leashes, music in the park at times, quite peaceful early mornings, great indigenous and endemic planting!

Great walk from red bus last stop at lighthouse to waterfront through well maintained park, past stadium, then on ope street with wide sidewalks to the waterfront. Felt safe. Good park to relax in or play. Lots of room. Likely very good family outing

It's one of the best of it's kind in the world. We loved the trees, the flowers and the little animals scurrying around the area. Also a delightful little restaurant for when you need to take a break.

Well worth the visit the park is centrally located and has access to many great tourist destinations like the mountain and cable car, the waterfront and the Cape Quarter. The views are stunning and the gardens themselves are very lovely.

A cbd experience that surprises and delights, a precious reflection of an urban expression to be proud of, don't forget the picnic basket, camera and share it with loved ones.

Although we do not have small children any more and no grandchildren yet, we cannot fail to notice how much kids enjoy this space every time we go for a walk here. This is a great interactive space for kids of all ages and wonderful for a picnic. But you do not have to be a child or have kids... More

What can I say its a family outdoor adventure where kids get to play i see many people having ourdoor kiddies parties in the park which is fun and the amenities and park activities for the kids is very well balanced. Generally a very clean park and lots of attractions for little ones
