Trafalgar Park
This fabulous park can serve as an escape from the hustle and bustle of busy Capetonian life. The park is known for being a popular meeting spot for students, people on their lunch breaks and kiddies who want to stretch their legs a bit. Feel free to bring a blanket and simply sit on the lawn to soak up the sun, where you can park-off and enjoy a little midday picnic. There is also a pathway for cyclists to enjoy. The park is pet-friendly, so bring along your furry friend but remember the leash! The lush greenery makes the park perfect for a few insta-worthy pics. z
