About Trafalgar Park

Trafalgar Park is a charming little retreat from the hustle and bustle of Cape Town, situated right in the vibey cultural, commercial and residential area of Woodstock. Although it is small, with a total area of only three hectares, it has become a common meeting place for locals on a lunch break, students, or little ones that want to take advantage of the play area.

Did you know? In 1968, this site was proclaimed a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and is now protected for its historical value.

Part of the appeal of Trafalgar Park is that it is so historically relevant. It is here that the remains of a French Redoubt (a type of fort) and brick chimney that resembles a kiln can be found. These date back to the late 18th century and are all that remain from what was once a well-established line of defence against attack by the British.

In addition to a fun play area for little ones, there is also a lawn, on which leisurely picnics can be enjoyed, or views of the bustling suburb savoured. The pathways are ideal for strolls or cycles, and Trafalgar Park is suitable for dogs that are kept on their leash.

Benches are scattered throughout the park for the comfort of those wanting to have a breather. Although not a botanical landmark, the park certainly boasts a pretty variety of gorgeous plants and trees, which make for lovely backdrops to photographs and add to the overall prettiness. Parking and public ablutions add to the convenience of Trafalgar Park, which is open to all during the daylight hours.
