Green Point Urban Park has 5-star rating on Trip Advisor, – and it’s free!<p>​</p><span><p>Before the pandemic, the venue welcomed approximately one million annual visitors. It is easily one of Cape Town’s most popular spots, going so far as to maintain a five-star ranking on TripAdvisor.</p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img class="responsive" src="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/GPoint-1.jpg" alt="" style="width:842px;" /> </figure></span><span><p>It’s no wonder that this prized asset is the recipient of a whopping 11 South African Landscaping Institute and Landscape Irrigation Association Awards of Excellence. The park boasts an outdoor labyrinth that’s perfect for curious minds, bicycle tracks, a gym, several picnic areas, a biodiversity garden packed with flora and fauna from all over the Western Cape, and is a prime choice for a variety of events. The cherry on top is that it is free to enter this historical common space and enjoy these facilities. </p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img class="responsive" src="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/GPoint-2.jpg" alt="" style="width:914px;" /> </figure>​​</span><span>​​</span><span><p>In the coming months, the City will add to these highlights with the construction of a dome and new landscaping features. </p><p>My goal for this space is for it to become Cape Town’s own iconic Central Park and continue to be enjoyed by people from all walks of life, be they nature-lovers, families, fitness fanatics or all three. </p><p>Studies show that urban parks make numerous positive contributions to city spaces, including boosting individual mental and physical health, property values, and reducing air pollution. This footprint, in particular, increases Cape Town’s appeal as a world-class destination ideal for tourists and investors looking to land in the city.  </p> <figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> <img class="responsive" src="https://resource.capetown.gov.za/cityassets/Media%20Centre/GPoint-3.jpg" alt="" style="width:853px;" /></figure></span><p><br>I encourage everyone enjoying these last weeks of warmer weather to take advantage of this beautiful location. </p><p><br>End</p><span><figure class="subtopic-fullsize-img"> </figure>​​</span>2022-03-22T22:00:00ZGP0|#1d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70;L0|#01d539e44-7c8c-4646-887d-386dc1d95d70|City news;GTSet|#62efe227-07aa-45e7-944c-ceebacca891dGP0|#e29e1910-ddd3-4e5b-89eb-90f0fa2aadec;L0|#0e29e1910-ddd3-4e5b-89eb-90f0fa2aadec|Greenpoint Park;GTSet|#2e3de6c1-9951-4747-8f53-470629a399bb;GP0|#039b96db-d699-47dd-b59e-e5adff4a83bf;L0|#0039b96db-d699-47dd-b59e-e5adff4a83bf|review10
