A funky garden park to relax at, enjoy coffee or tea, and there are some really cool swings for kids to play in... Great to walk and relax as a break to site seeing.

Nice gardens where you can walk around or sit and take a sandwich for lunch. Be aware of the squirrels and beggars. Nice ancient trees, specially the big rubber tree.

This is a a garden in the middle of the city rich in historical significance. It is on the usual tour route and near the seat of past and current governments, Jewish sites, and not far from District Six.

Unfortunately, we were there on a cloudy, cool day in fall so there wasn't a lot in bloom. But the park is beautiful! Huge, sprawling spaces and paths. I'd like to see it in full bloom!

These gardens are centrally situated in Cape Town and have clearly seen better days. Obviously the drought won't help but they do have an air of neglect and could do with some more attention. There is no charge for admission. There are a couple of...More

What a treat to take a break from museums and monuments to stroll through Company's Gardens. The fall season has it's particular foliage and blooms all easy to see, smell and touch as you come through one area to the next groomed section. Ancient trees,...More
