Greenpoint Urban Park, Cape Town

We found this park quite by chance and were just so impressed by the sense of community. The Park is only about two years old. The walkways are well kept, the plants are marked – it is truly an educational experience, particularly given its emphasis on indigenous flora.  There are different areas e.g. Plants that heal will have a notice board displaying the uses for the plants planted in that area ; the coastal plant area had a reconstructed midden.

There were security personnel who not only patrol the grounds, but were also quite knowledgeable about the garden.   It is worth the drive out to Moullie Point – go for an outdoor workout  in the gym area ; take the family for a picnic ; take the kids to play in the parks (they have two different play parks for different age groups)

  • The park opens at 7h00 and closes at 19h00 daily;
  • The park is used at one’s own risk, including the play and exercise equipment;

  • Picnics are permitted but skateboarding and swimming are prohibited.
  • Dogs are welcome and must at all times be leashed. Owners are required to pick up and dispose of dog excrement. Dogs are however prohibited from entry into the Biodiversity Garden;
