NEW - Green Point Biodiversity Park
Although it has been open for some months now, the new Green Point Biodiversity Park is still relatively unknown but it is definitely worth a visit. 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 childrens play area are just a few of the hightlights. 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 near the 'fan walk' on the Virgin Active gym side.
