Ratanga Park is a green oasis in the heart of Century City where you can relax, unwind and breathe in some fresh air after a hectic day. It’s a great place to have a picnic with the family, let the kids run free and play.
Alternatively, the park also offers a variety of land and water-based outdoor exercise options in beautiful landscapes, as well as the enhancement of rich bird-life and indigenous vegetation.
What was formerly known as Cape Town’s amusement park Ratanga Junction, has now been transformed into a beautiful public space that is open to anyone for free. You’ll find two bridges crossing the canal, open lawn space and a big picture frame for taking home some memories. There is also a kiddies play area with a jungle gym, a slide, swings and lots of space to explore.
The green lawns are very inviting to have family picnics or enjoy some ball games. The park is surrounded by apartment buildings as well as coffee shops and restaurants for your convenience.
Of course, the park is not only popular with families and kids, but also runners and dog-walkers. They enjoy the wide open space just as much and soak in the green scenery and lush surroundings. Ratanga Park has a similar feel to the Green Point Park in Cape Town and is a great success among locals and visitors alike.
It’s a beautiful park not far from town and our kids loved to explore it. It’s perfect for riding their bikes and having a little play session after a long day. We love the green open space in Century City and usually visit the park after being to Canal Walk.

Where do you park to enter the park. I seemed to get lost recently looking for the entrance
