Green Point Urban Park

Celebrating Earth Day with a beautiful scene from Green Point Urban Park, in the heart of Cape Town.

It also ticks the boxes for this year’s theme – ‘environmental and climate change literacy’.

There are three imaginatively designed areas – People & Plants, Wetlands, and Discovering Biodiversity – that, along with educational information boards, act as the best kind of outdoor museum. This carefully curated garden is composed of a rich variety of flora indigenous to the Cape, and offers the only Biodiversity Showcase Garden of its kind, featuring 25 000 indigenous plants, trees, shrubs, bulbs and groundcovers consisting of 300 different plant species.

Residents, fitness fanatics, school groups all come to enjoy the facilities while being encouraged to become environmentally aware.

  1. I was only thinking this evening that I need to find a photo for Earth Day on Saturday. This is lovely, and must be new? I don’t remember the park in Green Point. Your shot is fabulous!
