Bugz Family PlayPark is the largest playpark in the Western Cape! WOW! We have a world of activities for kids who love climbing, jumping, running, exploring, thinking and engaging with a range of zones we've worked very hard to build. You see everything we've built has a purpose - to help bright buttons grow through play. Our massive outdoor playground will challenge little minds, work little muscles and burn off some of that endless energy the right way. Our magnificent indoor area is for kids aged 2-10 and filled with obstacles, challenges and imagination-expanding FUN! We say no to keeping kids bored indoors all day and yes to learning through play, it's The Bugz Way.

A child play ground of note. Very noisy in and around the restaurant area. Not much food choice but burger and chips for the kids is great. A wine restaurant is outside the play area for those looking for some quiete time out away from the kids.

Thankfully my daughter is too young to pick up on the poor attitudes of people to ruin her fun. Something has changed over the months of coming to the park but it lacks the family friendly element that once was, there is also a lack of minders at the inside play areas. Won't be going back in a hurry and... More

This is such a great place, especially for kids, I would say, under 10. They have strict rules about having a bathing suit (bathing costume) if your child is going to swim, and also using pool diapers for kids. It was so much fun for our 4 young kids. Pay the money and get the pass for the entire day... More
