A list of beautiful parks in Cape Town:
On a sunny day in Cape Town, why not pack a picnic basket and head to one of these amazing parks in Cape Town? Be in nature and let the kids run around or enjoy a tour through some of the gardens. It is also a great idea for children’s birthday parties.

In winter there is the Blinkwater stream flowing through the Little Glen. There is a play area for the kids. Buy picnic goodies from the Pick & Pay or Woolworths in Camps Bay Village.
De Waal Park
Molteno Road, Cape Town
Apparently the farm was named after my great great (not sure how many greats needed) grandfather David Christiaan de Waal. My mother’s surname was de Waal – in case you are wondering…
2 Avondrust Cir, Chapmans Peak
I once attended a wedding on Noordhoek Common. If it is not allowed – please forgive me – it wasn’t my wedding. Delicious treats can be bought from the Food Barn Deli Shop nearby. They also stock an impressive range of Vegan products.
Just above Ou Kaapse Weg
Entrance free for Wild Card holders. In winter you can BBQ and swimming in the dam is permitted all year round. You can hike to Elephant’s Eye or just stroll around the dam. There is nowhere close by to buy food.
Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens
Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden is acclaimed as one of the great botanic gardens of the world. There is an amazing tea room which serves the best Malva Pudding.
The Sunday Evening Summer Concerts are not to be missed. The back drop for the stage is Table Mountain.
