This park definitely has something for everyone. It is one of the many perfect halaal travel destinations in Cape Town.It is ideally located near the Cape Town CBD and is in close proximity to the V&A Waterfront and Sea Point promenade. There is ample parking space available outside the park, however it is important to note that the parkings do get full. Sometimes waiting in the parking lot helps as there are always people entering and leaving the park. Further down the road or across the park near the Greenpoint tennis club there is also parking available. Entrance to this park is free of charge.
This park has amazing nature walks.The walkways are nice and wide so the kids can enjoy riding their bicycles and scooters along the path. It is important to note that they do not allow the use of motorised scooters. Other than that anything from bicycles, small kiddies motorbikes, scooters, skateboards, roller blades and all other bikes are allowed to be used.
This park is also an amazing picnic spot. So bring along a nice picnic basket with you or you can do what we sometimes do when I’m in no mood to prepare a picnic basket. We stop by the Caltex garage that is located near the waterfront and buy something called a humanga. We all love it and it is very reasonably priced. In fact we love it so much that I will do a separate post about it.
You can also bring along your swing balls, soccer, cricket and rugby balls with you as there is a tremendous amount of open space to play all types of ball games or board games. As you walk further into the park you will find mini play parks for kids. They are intended for specific age groups that are indicated upon entrance to the mini parks. The equipment at these mini play parks are uniquely designed and the kids love it. There is also an outdoor gym circuit at the park.
There is also a restaurant at the park called Tea in the Park. They are not halaal certified. However, they do not sell alcohol, pork or bacon. The only meat product that they sell is smoked chicken. They showed me their invoice which indicated that they got their smoked chicken from a halaal certified source.
There is a sundial and labyrinth that are pretty cool to go and check out. And you also have access to the lighthouse near the Sea Point promenade through the park.
If you are from Cape Town and have not been to this park I highly recommend that you do go and view it. And if you are touring or plan on touring Cape Town you could add this on your list of places to visit when in Cape Town. We would love to know what are your thoughts on this park.
