Cape Town is known for its spectacular natural beauty and amazing sites that can be seen throughout the city. Man-made parks also abound in Cape Town, from the much-frequented Kirstenbosch Gardens and relics of a distant past, such as the Company Gardens, to the many diverse reserves spread throughout the Cape peninsula. Each of these Cape Town parks are wonderful places to visit, to relish the beauty of nature, take a walk in a tranquil environment and/or to enjoy a picnic with the family.
The newest addition to parks in Cape Town‘s inner-city is a legacy of the 2010 FIFA World Cup – the new Green Point Park. Reminiscent of New York’s famous Central Park, the Green Point Urban Park is an oasis in the midst of the manic bustle of the city and tourist hub that is the Atlantic seaboard. An excellent place to learn about biodiversity (for young and old) the area around the Cape Town Stadium, has wide, paved paths, islands with shade-trees and a variety of structures where visitors can rest and eat. Facilities are clean, neat and safe and in addition to the views of the Stadium and Signal Hill. The 10.5 hectare Green Point park is open from 7am – 7pm daily and entrance as well as parking is free (with 24-hour security – because the City knows we don’t live in a perfect world yet!). Intended as a “people’s recreation park“, in addition to the many educational activities, the Park also boasts a fitness park with cycling and outdoor training facilities which are available to visitors. Other sections of the park include a play park for the kids, adventure park, a learning park for functions or seminars, an art park for exhibitions and craft markets, and an events park for concerts and outdoor events. The park is also walking distance from other interesting historical sites such as the Mouille Point Lighthouse.
