Attraction details
Owner description: 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.

Green point best kept secret. What a nice place to walk though. It is very quiet and lots to see. So many different ways to walk . And plant life to see and the ponds and lake are very nice. It is very well looked after.

The park is beautiful, lush lawns, water features, seating and has jungles gyms to entertain the kids. Close to food outlets, Cape Town stadium and Sea Point Pavilion. Great place to relax and unwind while the kids enjoy the wide open space

This park is absolutely amazing and has the best display of the bio diversity of our plant life besides Kirstenbosch. Don't miss a visit if you are near the stadium

We had the pleasure of an outing with friends to the park during the school holidays...last week (29Dec.2014) It was a scorching hot day but in the park there was a lovely cool sea breeze.
