About Westridge Gardens

The Cape Flats is a significant area in Cape Town, important for its history and heritage. In recent years, it has also become a hub of social development and the celebration of a brand new South African identity. Mitchells Plain, in the Cape Flats, is home to the pretty Westridge Gardens Park.

Did you know? Westridge Gardens is open every day and there is no entrance fee, despite there being so much to enjoy.

Thanks to the floral diversity of this park, it is a particularly pretty oasis in the heart of a bustling neighbourhood. Indigenous Cape fynbos is one of the park’s most valuable treasures that is not only botanically valuable, but also beautiful to examine. In addition, when funding was received by the Urban Renewal Fund and ward allocations in 2010, an exquisite rose garden was established. Today, this garden blooms in colourful vibrance, inviting visitors to breathe in its sweet scent and admire the sheer variety.

There are a number of pathways through Westridge Gardens too, which are ideal for strolling, walking your dog (on a leash), or cycling. The play area is varied, with exciting equipment that is designed for children of different ages, as well as little ones with physical disabilities. The skateboard ramp is another feature of this park that makes it popular amongst an even wider sector of the local community, promoting sports and healthful activities.

Thanks to the picturesque nature of Westridge Gardens and the lovely grassy areas, it has proven to be a popular setting for wedding photographs, and an idyllic place to enjoy a serene picnic with friends and family. Parties and small celebrations can be hosted in the public area by prior arrangement. In addition, the park is the host of a number of community concerts as well as the Mitchells Plain Festival.

Benches, public ablutions and parking add to the convenience and appeal of Westridge Gardens.
