I am so jealous I wish that there was a park as beautiful as this where I live. As soon as you step into the garden you instantly relax. It would be a great place to bring along a picnic or a book and rest...More

loved the plants, the squirrels, the museums and the green oasis in the middle of the city. Carefully tended and clearly appreciated by both locals and tourists.

Safe and interesting place to visit. As a historian it was like taking a walk back in time. The VOC and all the history that is associated with the arrival of Jan van Riebeeck in the Cape.

Beautiful place to just take the load off or while away the time while waiting for something else. Just relaxing to walk around and see the beautifully arranged gardens and very old trees, with Table Mountain as a backdrop.

The Park is in Central Cape Town and busy with people using it mainly for relaxation and walking or visiting the museums. As mentioned before, it is not very big and maybe not ideal for the purpose you want to use it for... More
