Oasis in the centre of Cape Town. Great restuarant in the centre of the park. Lovely walk ways and access to 2 museums. one art, one natural history. Lovely shade and places to just sit and chill.

Lovely place to go with your kids. Take a blanket and have a picnic in the middle of the grass. Be sure to buy some nuts so that the squirrels can also have something to eat :-)

This provides a relaxing break from the bustle of the city. There is a nice café where you can enjoy coffee and cake.

We chanced on the gardens while strolling around town. It is a gem hidden in the Centre of town. Well worth a visit and a good place to relax for a few minutes.
