Beautiful gardens, magnificent planting and immaculately kept. When the heat and noise of the city get too much just head to company gardens and enjoy the tranquility. A really good cafe is also in the gardens so when the weight gets to your feet just settle down for a cuppa!

If you are in Cape Town this is well worth a visit.Well kept gardens close to the beautiful parliament buildings. The park is really an oasis of calm in the middle of the madness of Cape Town traffic. Best visited at weekends when you can see Capetonians enjoying themselves too.

Not bad to walk through , but be aware of the poor people sleeping rough and the consequential issues they may have

Go and find out about the formation of Cape Town and enjoy the gardens. Stop and have a coffee, chill and take in the world around you.

There are so many things to do in Cape Town and yet this was one of my favourites. A gentle stroll round was stunning with everything tended to immaculately, I even saw some squirrels who were clearly very tame. A great way of getting away from all the hustle and bustle.

If your a tourist or you live in the western cape you have to stop here at least once. Pack a pick-nick basket or just go feed the squires.

The Historical gardens take up only a very small part of these gardens. Interesting and filled with a variety of native plants. Good small cafe in the gardens. Lots of afamikies enjoying the public spaces.

As well as the very well stocked gardens there is also a fabulous natural history which is well worth a visit.

This is a lovely green space in the city centre where you can either hang around with nuts for the squirrels, a book on a bench, a camera for the huge old trees, wedding parties over a weekend, coffee at the restaurant or other eye-catching forms of entertainment, whether it is a display making a political, socio-economical or environmental statement....
