Green spaces

Cape Town has an exciting new urban park - Green Point Park - a creatively landscaped "peoples park" that includes walkways, open spaces and biodiversity gardens in the centre of the city adjacent to the Metropolitan Golf Course and to the new Cape Town Stadium. Go there to relax on the lawns or have a picnic at the shaded tables and benches, be entertained by the metal and wire animals that are part of the landscape and be fascinated by the interesting interpretation labels.
Or just go there to see the Belle Monde and their dogs go by - from their upmarket apartments on the beachfront at Mouille Point to the gym and coffee shops of Green Point. Entrance is free and it is patrolled by a pair of red-hatted City of Cape Town officials so it is quite safe.
(You will see that the slopes of Signal Hill are looking a bit blackened from a very recent fire that raged there two days ago.)
