Green Point Park
Green Point Park is a relatively new area of Cape Town and one of the city’s hidden gems. This idyllic and urban park surrounds Cape Town Stadium and is the perfect place for families. The park is designed with scooters and bicycles in mind, so paths are wide, allowing for both pedestrians and wheels. The redeveloped peninsula offers benches in shaded areas ideal for family picnics. There are endless activities for children. Play parks and climbing areas keep children entertained for hours.
This unique park is not just for families. The outdoor gym areas and walkways attract locals during lunch breaks and outside of office hours. There are many art displays throughout the gardens. The park’s staff takes great pride in keeping these gardens in pristine condition so that South African natural heritage can be showcased at its best. For those who wish to learn more about the country’s flora and fauna, a trip to Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens is also recommended.
The park and Biodiversity GardenGreen Point Park and Biodiversity Garden has entertaining information panels, and marked walkways will guide you around the gardens. Education and conservation play a large role in the gardens, but most importantly it is a fun place for children to explore. The gardens are divided into several sections:
- People and Plants
- Discovering Biodiversity
Keep your eyes peeled for statues and hidden animals along the path, and learn about the best habitats for native wildlife. Open your senses to the plants on display. Smell the flowers as you pass by or walk through various types of vegetation to feel the difference underfoot.
