Green Point Park
A new addition to the Green Point area - perfect for a family outing with scooters, bikes and picnic baskets.
The area around the Cape Town Stadium has been successfully transformed into a public park, inviting Capetonians to explore, be active and learn about biodiversity. The park has wide paved paths that allow for both pedestrians and children on bikes to navigate safely around each other, and there are little ‘islands’ with shady trees and a variety of structures to rest on or have a picnic. The toilet facilities are kept clean and there are friendly guards guiding activity (we were asked very politely to not let our children climb a tree, explaining to them that it is still growing) and answering questions. Educational pockets encourage visitors of all ages to look around - there are footprints in the ground and information boards to guide you around the biodiversity gardens - and all in all this park has the potential to become a new favourite among local and visiting families.
