Cape Town is home to numerous wonderful elements and hosts many great (annual) events, such as the Cape Town Jazz festival and the Cape Argus Cycle Tour. We’re sure many of you already know that Cape Town will host a must-see soccer match between nineteen time English premier league champions Manchester United and our very own Urban Warriors – Ajax Cape Town on Saturday, 21 July 2012, at the Cape Town Stadium.
The news of this game has been buzzing all over Cape Town and the country for the past few months. Huge hype has been created online and offline. Many locals feel that this is a unique opportunity – to see Manchester United taking on our Urban Warriors live in our Mother City.
“The City is proud to be associated with a leading brand such as Manchester United and this association helps position Cape Town as a premier events destination. Matches such as this act as a great unifier of people and hence will have a very positive impact on the city,” said Grant Pascoe, Mayoral Committee Member for Tourism, Events and Marketing.
With thousands of tickets sold to date, the City of Cape Town has reported their plan to attempt to break the Guinness Book of World Records for the number of people singing collectively in one place. They would like to urge all spectators to sing “Happy Birthday” to South African icon, Nelson Mandela in honour of his 94th celebration.
This event will give Capetonians (and other supporters) the opportunity to re-live the soccer fever coupled with the 2010 FIFA World Cup. And those who went to the soccer games during the World Cup will remember how fun the Fan Walk to the stadium was and how hectic traffic was, therefore so supporters are urged to arrive early and make use of the MyCiTi bus.
Kick off time is at 15h00 and there will be no parking available at the stadium so it would be wise to make use of the numerous public transport options (including the MyCiTi bus) available on Saturday.
With the picnic basket and cooler box packed, the That’s Cape Town team embarked on a trip to explore one of the most beautiful and fascinating parks in Cape Town over the weekend — the Green Point Park and Biodiversity Gardens which is situated in Green Point next to the Cape Town stadium.
Upon arrival, while taking a long slow walk through the park we noticed all the amazing facilities available. These include an outdoor gym, a section perfect for cyclists, a learning park for functions (business or pleasure), clean toilets, drinking fountains and a cordoned off play park for the little ones which is completely safe. Not only is the Green Point Park a beautiful setting for people of all ages, it is very educational as well.
Educational boards can be found clearly marked throughout the garden. These boards provide useful information about the wildlife and vegetation found in the garden.
The lovely picnic tables, benches and green grass are perfect spots to enjoy breakfast, brunch, lunch, picnics and even birthday parties.
Entrance to the park is free and open to everyone, however there are a few rules (by the City of Cape Town) which should be adhered to at all times:
The Green Point Park is open every day from 07:00 until 19:00.
Picnics are permitted
Swimming, skateboarding, fires, braais, camping, loud music, flower picking and alcohol are not permitted
Dogs are welcome in the park, provided that they are on a lead and owners pick up and dispose of their excrement. Dogs are not allowed in the biodiversity garden
Parking is available near the entrances on the corner of Beach/Vlei Roads; on Bill Peters Drive (near the entrance to the Virgin Active gym); and on Bay Road (near the Mouille Point lighthouse).
There are also numerous pedestrian links to surrounding areas
The park has an outdoor gym and play park
Every inch of this magnificent landscape should be explored and absorbed, so be sure to spend an entire day there when visiting. Your children will love it.
