Cecil Park is located on a corner between Rhodes Avenue and Cecil Road. The park contains a grass field in the centre with swings and benches. There are various trees on the plot as well. On the sides there are beds with a large variety of plant species. Some are indigenous, some are not. Local resident Jacques Claasen is very active in maintaining the park and he is continuously planting new species and looks after the plants.
We aim to help Jacques by providing indigenous plants that can enhance the species present in Cecil Park. Due to the proximity to Table Mountain, this is furthermore an important site to plant sunbird and sugarbird friendly species that help create a stepping stone corridor for the birds.
Right next to this site are two other plots that are part of our greening efforts here together with Jacques.
