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.

We went for a walk there on a Sunday around lunch time and the picnic areas were packed with families laying out tables with cloths and picnic baskets and children running around the play areas, with friends playing football and other games. It had a great atmosphere ,then... More

The care and attention to detail that went into the planning and development of the very special place impresses me. It's great to see people of all ages and persuasions enjoying this outdoor experience. You can learn, have fun or just chill.

This is such a lovely park to take the grandchildren. Entry is free. There are 2 different play-areas for younger and older children, which are close enough to each other for mom and dad to keep an eye on the offspring. There's plenty of parking, places for picnics, children's parties. A walk in the educational biodiversity garden is a must,... More

Not worth a special trip but fine to visit if in the area. Not really much else to say to fill 50 words character.

This amazing park is just wonderful for families and people of all ages. The most superb play park for the kiddies, kept beautifully clean and tiny, outdoor fitness equipment for the adults, paths and trails to ride or jog and lovely peaceful areas to enjoy the wildlife. But one big disappointment - there is no little cafe to get a... More

Greenpoint Park and Biodiversity Garden is only a skip and a hop away from the beautiful Cape Town Sports Stadium, and a 5 minute drive from the city. There is an interesting garden area, featuring different types of vegetation, and the plants are well-labelled, and their uses are explained. There are plenty of ponds for water birds, for example, ducks,... More

At times, you find that one or two big families essentially take over the park. Short of the kitchen sink they bring everything along. Same rules as at Kirstenbosch schould apply. No chairs, no tables, no umbrellas.
