Green Point Urban Park – Flickr pic of the day
Says Christopher, “This was taken at Green Point Urban Park on December 30, 2011 using an Olympus E-510. A great place and wonderful location for a family picnic with lots of activities for the kids; they especially like the rides and play area. The Green Point Urban Park is open every day from 07h00 until 19h00.”
The Biodiversity Showcase Garden features over 300 plant species from the greater Cape Town region, as well as themed areas and displays including “Gardening for Biodiversity”, “Everything is Connected”, a Khoikhoi food garden, medicinal plants and a display of veld types.
Visitors are led through three fascinating biodiversity-themed areas focusing on people and plants, a biodiversity discovery trail, and a wetland walk.
Tickets for the guided tours of the Biodiversity Showcase Garden are available from the Cape Town Stadium ticket office, situated on Fritz Sonnenberg Road, Green Point.
Tours commence daily from Tuesday to Saturday at 10h00, 12h00 and 14h00.
