Nice little gardens

A nice little place for a stroll with views of table mountain, gardens, and statues. It is a pretty small garden, but worth a stroll en route somewhere else.

The garden is beautiful and a nice place to relax. It is worth it to walk through if you are visiting the museum or are in the area for another reason.

Top tip: take time to divert off to the nearby attractions. These are not floral gardens but rather a peaceful pedestrianised park in the middle of the city. Walking their length is one of the top ten things to do in this city of many attractions and in the summer the shade is very welcome. It's somewhat ethnic and safe.

I guess it has some historical interest but otherwise skip it-very popular with locals but I did not understand why we were taken there frankly-it is old yes but not that interesting in plants or views-of course the heat did not help

Lovely relaxing place to visit, lots of shade and beautiful plants, trees and flowers. Litter free and felt safe. Great café for lunch or a coffee with good food at a good price.

We really enjoyed our stroll in these lovely gardens - and the café serves very good food. An oasis in the heart of the city.

Had an incredible french toast and coffee at the company gardens restuarant this passed weekend. Take some time to stroll around the gardens and feed the squirrels.

Taking an early morning or late afternoon stroll through this magnificent part of this beautiful city is just awesome!! From looking at the age old trees, to enjoying the birdlife right down to feeding the cute little squirrels with nuts that are for sale there. This is a MUST visit for anybody visiting Cape Town!!!

interesting to visit in day but keep to main paths, avery,vegetabel garden and museum & art gallery at far end well worth a visit. Cafes and seating areas. Find the oldest tree in Cape Town.

So close to the CBD yet a garden with a wide range of plants and trees. The labelling is good. Well worth a stroll when visiting other attractions around its borders, particularly along Government Avenue.
