Review: Ferndale Nursery

Reading Time: 3 minutes

This post is dedicated to those parents of young kids living in Cape Town. If you are travelling to Cape Town with young kids I’m not exactly sure if you would be interested in visiting this place as Cape Town has SO much to offer. This destination doesn’t really make it on to the must see travel destinations in Cape Town. They do, however, make it onto a list of “If I am in the area, have some time and want to visit this destination as a quick stop before heading on to the next thing on my list”, or if you have been to Cape Town before and have done all the tourist attractions and are taking this trip slower and more chilled out then you would love this place…


Nestled in the heart of Constantia is where you will find this Nursery. It has a lovely chilled vibe to it. They have such a diverse range of plants that you could buy, ranging from huge fruit trees to pretty multi-coloured flowers and even koi fish.

Aside from buying amazing plants for your garden this nursery is fun for the kids. They have an impressive aviary selection, ducks that the kids can feed and some other animals. After you pass the animals and the kids have fun with them, you will come to an extensive play area. We were very impressed by the play area to say the least. They have a tractor type jungle gym, they have another big jungle gym with swings and slides, they also have a sand pit for the kids to play in. There is also a small bridge walk that goes through some trees and gives you the feeling of being in a forest. My favourite and the kids favourite part of the nursery was their amazing maze. We had so much fun running through it. They have a few fish ponds that the kids enjoyed seeing as well.

Luckily I had packed a small picnic bag to take with us to the nursery. As there was a picnic table right by the jungle gym and the kids were excited for a picnic after all that playing. I had just packed some cut up mangos, apples, biscuits and water as our picnic snack.

What do you guys pack for picnics? Have you guys been to this nursery before? Another amazing nursery in Cape Town we love is the Bellville Stodels nursery.
