    hi Nazeera, It’s a popular spot for children’s parties, so it is certainly possible.

    Hi guys this seems like a great place for kids to j-board or skate board. I do see the rules prohibit skateboards but is there any section that can be used for this activity?

    Hey, yesterday was such a nice sunny spring day and could’ve been better than spending the day in the Urban Park. My wife and I started a NPO (Sport and Adventures) and our first outing surely going to be there. So fun and educational. Well layed out and safe. I recommend it to youth groups that want to see our biodiversity and learn more how we can sustain our planet. Anyone that wants to refer me to similar educational adventurous venues please email me: Donovan Poole

    Thank u z:)

    A beautifull place to take your children to. The only negative thing is people need to clean up after the pets or they should allow pets in there if they cannot keep it clean

    Just one more fabulous reason why Cape Town is the best city in the universe!
