THE GREEN POINT PARK is essentially a re-engineered seasonal wetland where the residents of Sea Point used to gather for regattas in the late 19th century. Filled in by 1898, it was re-excavated during construction of the Cape Town stadium in 2010 when the golf course and the Green Point Common playing fields were re-aligned. The wetland is fed by streams from the Table Mountain escarpment. Now a beautiful urban green lung, the fynbos garden starts to bloom in early winter with a myriad of subtle colour and textures.
