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

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

A beautiful setting, in the shadow of Table Mountain, Lion's Head and the Stadium built for the 2010 World Cup Soccer. Very "green", full of nature/natural exhibits, areas on which to run and play, separate and VERY unique and beautifully thought out playgrounds, one for the 1-6 year olds, and a separate one for those 6-12. Eating and just "sitting"... More

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.

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.
