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.

This park has an interesting display about khoikhoi people and the life around the cape before the Europeans. Nice garden with indigenous plants and stories of their household and medicinal use. Also, two big playgrounds for kids!

I am fortunate that I have a relative who works opposite the park and have seen this built from nothing. Always go in and photograph the lake and birds. A little piece of heaven in the city.
