Meadowridge Common<p>​Meadowridge Common is a small protected area of approximately 8 hectares, a valuable remnant of the critically endangered Cape Flats sand fynbos. It contains as many as 137 different flowering plant species, four of which are listed as endangered. These plants are representative of the almost 600 species that were collected by Dr William Frederick Purcell on the Bergvliet Farm between 1914 and 1919. This collection can today be viewed in the Compton Herbarium at Kirstenbosch National Botanical Garden.</p><p>Floral displays are at their best in spring, from September to October. A number of insects, birds and amphibians, including the endangered Cape rain frog (Breviceps gibbosus), have been observed. Meadowridge Common is managed by the City of Cape Town, with the help of the <a href="http://meadowridgecommon.blogspot.co.za/" target="_blank">Friends of Meadowridge Common<i class="icon link-external"></i></a>.</p>GP0|#05fb5d88-5860-4a8a-866f-28c74794eaae;L0|#005fb5d88-5860-4a8a-866f-28c74794eaae|Walking and hiking;GTSet|#153637b8-411d-4bf7-8214-7237f5d775f0;GP0|#754dde40-8789-4494-9113-50ac9121fd42;L0|#0754dde40-8789-4494-9113-50ac9121fd42|Nature appreciation<p>​Approximately 8 hectares</p>GP0|#2ebd98bc-cc62-4ce0-a267-29e2121e5b6b;L0|#02ebd98bc-cc62-4ce0-a267-29e2121e5b6b|Walking pathways;GTSet|#4be4596d-cdfe-41f7-a569-9d9c4e16c716Edison Drive, Faraday Way, Meadowridge<img alt="" src="http://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/PublishingImages/Biodiversity-Parks-Header.jpg" style="BORDER:0px solid;" />
