The Best Gardens and Parks in Cape Town

Find sanctuary at these spectacular parks and gardens where nature and art intertwine.

Sun-kissed beaches aren’t the only public places in Cape Town to take advantage of; our pretty city has a plethora of parks, which are perfect for walking your dog, a picnic with friends, or simply stretching out with a newspaper and enjoying the beautiful plant life. Discover green spots for lunch in city parks, or overgrown suburban wonderlands for a romantic rendezvous. Parks are not only relaxing and fun, but also meeting points for like minded folk.

Someone once said, “gardens are the windows to a city’s culture”. Which is so true… they offer interesting insights into the history, geology and climate of a place, revealing their many layers the further you explore.

More than that, gardens are such a wonderful refuge for those seeking sanctuary from the stress of modern life.

Capetonians are blessed to be living in a city that’s dotted with a verdant array of horticultural havens, offering serenity and peacefulness at every turn. From inner city delights to Winelands wonders, Overberg oases and Breede Valley beauties.

Plus, there’ll be pony rides and other kids’ activities, making it the perfect place for a leisurely Sunday afternoon with the whole family.
