Located in the heart of Cape Town’s City Bowl, De Waal Park created in 1895 by David Christiaan de Waal. It was originally renowned for its diversity of trees and today became a cherished as a tranquil community meeting place.
The park is well-known for its social meeting place for children, picnickers, slope rope walker, dogs and their owners, tree and bird lovers, runners and many others. No other place in Cape Town is more spiritual and loved by its visitors, then De Waal Park.
The Park boasts grassed areas, public toilets, benches and footpaths, all looked after and maintained by the Friends of De Waal park organisation since 2008. The park also welcomes dogs; however these have to be on a leash at all times.
