Kiddies play parks in Camps Bay
Except for all the different beaches in Camps Bay – Bakoven, Beta Beach, Glen Beach etc. Camps Bay offers wonderful play parks for kids.
The Little Glen, Camps Bay
Park in Blinkwater street or at the end of the First Crescent cul de sac
This one is probably my favourite as it is on a greenbelt with the Blinkwater stream running through it with lots of trees. It is a short stroll from www.lionsview.co.za which is the perfect villa for children.
Camps Bay Beach next to the tidal pool
Park in Victoria Road and the play area is situated near the corner of Victoria Road and Geneva Drive but on the beach side.
Here you are spoilt for choice with the tidal pool on the one side and the ocean on the other. Pick & Pay, Woolworths and a host of coffee shops and restaurants are across the road, so no need to pack lunch or snacks. There are also public toilets by the tidal pool.
Finchley Road, Camps Bay
From Camps Bay Drive turn into Dunkeld Road and drive to the very end, then turn left into Finchley Road.
This park also has gym type equipment for parents to work out while the kids play. You can walk along the Nature Trail to the Symmonds sports field where children and dogs can run around to get rid of surplus energy.
The Drive, Camps Bay
From Victoria Road, turn into The Meadway and then into The Drive.
You can pop in at the Camps Bay Sports Club afterwards for a coffee or a burger. The Camps Bay Sports Club offers kiddies meals and their deck is perfect to watch the sun set. It is away from the busy strip and kids can play on the sports field. They are closed on Sundays.
From Victoria Drive turn into Beta Road, turn right and then the park is on the left on the corner at Beta Close.
Bakoven beach is a few meters away and offers a small secluded beach and large boulders to play on. There are no public toilets. Bootlegger coffee shop https://bootlegger.co.za/bootlegger-bakoven/ is around the corner. The luxurious Ebb Tide Apartments is walking distance from Bakoven and the 1,5 bedroom is a perfect apartment for a small family looking for a modern place on one level and a private pool. https://www.ebbtideapartments.com/accommodation/ebbtide101/
