About Rondebosch Park

Rondebosch is one of the centrally situated, vibrant suburbs of Cape Town, characterised by its diverse collection of residents from all over the world. Many university students opt to stay here, thanks to its central locale and vibe, and it is brimming with restaurants, coffee shops, arts, crafts, boutiques and galleries.

However, amidst all of the activity, there is the peace and prettiness of Rondebosch Park. This was established in 1870, when the management of Rondebosch Common was assumed by the local municipality, which then divided it. The park was the result of this division, making up a part of what was once a far larger whole.

Did you know? The Rondebosch Park hosts a Potter's Market twice a year (usually in March and November) featuring the works of both professional and amateur potters. The quality of merchandise on offer ensure the market is very well supported by locals and visitors who know about it.

This is an open park with free entrance to all between 08h00 and 18h00 every day. There are benches dotted conveniently around the park for parents, visitors or those simply wanting to admire the gorgeous trees and awesome Western Cape weather. Pathways criss-cross their way through the park, and avenues are flanked by giant oak, plane and pine trees to create a truly beautiful retreat in the heart of the city. The park is the perfect place for a picnic with friends or family.

The children’s playground is popular amongst little ones with plenty of energy to burn. Moms, dads, grandparents or carers can sit comfortably and watch their children playing. In addition, dog owners are welcome to bring their pooches, as long as they remain on a leash.

The various paths are popular amongst cyclists that want to enjoy the fresh air and sunshine rather than a stationery cycle in the gym.

In addition, Rondebosch Park is often used as the venue of choice for events; such as Carols by Candlelight or various performances. On Saturday mornings, there is a craft market here too.

Parking and public ablutions make Rondebosch Park even more suitable for visitors; whether for a quick stroll, or for a family picnic.
