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

Brilliant place for a family outing. Love the atmosphere and fun. Creative jungle gyms are super. Bring own picnic / food / drinks. There is typically an ice cream vendor outside the park, but that's all.

A biodiversity garden on our own doorstep? Fantastic. Safe and easy area to jog in, easy access from all sides and enough space to sneak away for a quiet picnic or host a big kiddies party with enough legroom to run and fall softly on green grass.

Wonderful and superbly used by all sorts of people and well maintained, like an old fashioned UK municipal park where there is pride and no evidence of misuse, safe and fascinating. A credit to cape Town Municipality. UK government should take note at what we are losing!!

Kid friendly, dog friendly, bike friendly, well maintained, well equipped (clean public loo's, 2 playgrounds, outdoor gym, picnic facilities etc). It really is a wondeful place. The only downfall is that it would be nice for the park to have a refreshment stand, as we sometimes cut our visits short to go and find something to quench our thirst!

Greenpoint Park is beside the stadium and has ample parking nearby. It is free to enter via a couple of gates and has a large area of gardens with very interesting explanations about biodiversity, plants which are indigenous to the area and invaders which are threatening the environment. It really is extremely well planned and attractive. There are large areas... More

Likely one of my favourite places in Cape Town. I never miss an opportunity to go to Greenpoint park. Such an open area away from traffic and the hustle bustle of town with the beautiful mountain views and the smell of the sea! We usually grab a cappuccino from Giovanni's or an ice cream and stroll through. Been known to... More
