Most of it, the future plans a tennis centre, eco- centre and some other elements.

The fields will be upgraded soon.

Looks beautiful but was the the land before that development a public green area? Because now it looks like the largest part of it was turned into a certainly secluded golf court for members only. If that is the case I can't really like the development as it effectively means turning public parks into private parks for the effluent.

Prior to the urban park development, the area housed old sports fields.

The current stadium site used to be part of the golf course. As you can see, a large portion was removed in order to accommodate the new world cup stadium.

*Entrance to the park is free.
*Drinking water is available along walk/running routes
*The park also hosts many events. One of the past events was a gala dinner for the opening of the South African Parliament, seat in Cape Town.

No, The public has not lost any space - it has been reconfigured into a beautiful facility for everyone, stunning actually.
And anyway, the fields that were there before were dodgy, full of litter and just very ragged.
So you can love this park - it is a jewel.

Thanks for these clarifications. In this light, I think this park is a very good development. There is no question about it being beautiful of course.

Thanks Slartibartfast - we are looking forward to the city growing around this green area now, so that it matures into a real Urban Park.
