We encourage a healthy lifestyle for all Capetonians by ensuring that our facilities are well managed and maintained. We also conserve, enhance and develop these spaces for present and future generations, thereby contributing to a better life for all. Cape Town’s 5 000 hectares of clean, safe and accessible open spaces are among the most beautiful in the world. We encourage you to explore the City’s beautiful green spaces to de-stress, get fit and spend quality time with family and friends.
