Rich in History - When the first "Gardens" were laid out to provide fresh fruits and vegetables to the passing ships the farm house, "Welgemeend", which is in excellent condition, was built on the lower slopes of Table Mountain.
Central to the residential area is the "de Waal Park" a well maintained park with fountain, and hosts music concerts in the bandstand once a month in the summer!

Gardens is a very busy area - I would not recommend this area for a holiday spot, as it's very busy. However it's safe.
