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.

Looking for a place to relax and let the kids play go to green point park. Very relaxing coffee shop and bistro, kids play free. Take a walk through the park and enjoy the various sights.

The only thing that annoyed me was the fact that kids would play in the semi dried up canals between... More

A nice nature walk in the middle of the City. If you want to get a breath of fresh air and collect your thoughts with a little help from nature as well as a little exercise then give it a try.

This park is young but very well designed and a lovely aspect. It's well kept. The biodiversity section is interesting with useful placards explaining the contents and reasoning. Great place for a picnic. Easy public transport access with MiCity pass. Walking distance to or from the V and A waterfront.
