Where do you go if you want to have walk bare feet on outstretched lawns, be close to nature, and relax in a safe environment? Children always need an outdoor place to let loose and have fun. In this day and age when not everybody has their own garden, it can be hard to find a tranquil place to just relax and be close to nature.
Green Point Eco-park is an absolutely stunning man-made paradise and part of the Cape Town Stadium. It’s a biodiversity showcase garden housing over 25 000 plants indigenous to the Cape with over 300 different flora species. The wetland that was created in the park attracts a diverse range of birdlife including Egyptian geese, Grey-headed Gulls, Red-knobbed coots amongst others.
Situated in the heart of Cape Town, Green Point Eco-Park is the ideal environment to have a family picnic, or take a nice walk without having to travel too far. In South Africa, safety is another concern, especially for parents who want to let their kids run around and have some fun. The park offers security at the gate as well as patrolling security on the premises.
