We have been fortunate to receive some fantastic photographs of the Biodiversity Showcase Garden, which you’ll find in the vibey suburb of Green Point. But before we get to the photographs lets find out a little bit more about these gardens.
The gardens are situated in the Green Point Urban Park and allows you, the visitor, to enjoy the space that is home to flora that is endemic to Cape Town. If you’re unfamiliar with what endemic means it basically means that the flora is completely unique to the area i.e. you won’t find this anywhere else – so this garden really is something special.
You can spend hours here and it’s a place that will be both educational and fun for your children. Take your time looking at all the animal sculptures, seeing which of the more than 300 local plant species you are able to identify, learn from the interactive displays and demonstration gardens and more.
The setting is something in itself with the beautiful backdrop of Table Mountain and the impressive Green Point Stadium that is adjacent to the garden. This is also a place where you can exercise your body as here are both running and cycle paths as well as a play park a perfect opportunity to discover all that the 12.5 hectares of the park offer.
