Green Point ParkGreen Point
Since its opening shortly after the Football World Cup in 2010, the Green Point Park has become extremely popular and come weekends it’s a hive of activity as couples go for a stroll, families picnic, youngsters play a game of soccer and kids play to their hearts content on the huge wooden jungle gyms and swings.
The park, situated alongside the Cape Town Stadium, was created from the land which was essentially a building site during the construction of the stadium for the World Cup. Now it has been transformed into a wonderful open green space representing the diversity of flora found in the Western Cape - over 300 species are present. Walkways, water features, interactive displays and information as well as picnic spots, shaded benches and a truly wonderful children’s play area are just a few of the highlights.
The park is open from 7am-7pm daily and entrance is free. There are two entrances, one in Bay Road near the Green Point lighthouse, and another alongside the Virgin Active gym.
