The Manyanani Peace Park was founded in 1995 on the anniversary of the first democratic elections of South Africa. Its Xhosa name, which means, “to bring people together,” symbolizes the purpose of the park. This is the first community managed park in Cape Town and possibly in South Africa.

When you visit the park by appointment with Christina Kaba to meet with the community, please give at least one week’s notice. A full-guided tour of the park with a presentation of the plans for the future can be arranged as well as refreshments, traditional food, entertainment from local youth groups (dances and choir) and tree planting.

The park comprises of 1.8 hectares of land on which are situated the following facilities:

  • indigenous Cape Floral lawns, trees and groundcovers
  • an open air amphitheatre used for cultural and community events.
  • formal pathways, drinking fountains and benches
  • a half size practice soccer field, home base for the Citi-Hilights soccer club
  • a full size open air basketball court , home base for the Slik-Nikes basketball club
  • a small community center with hall, toilets and store-room. This centre hosts women's job creation projects such as a thriving sewing group and a catering initiative.
  • play ground with a variety of well maintained equipment, to keep kiddies safe and off the streets after school.
  • a hand painted wall mural, painted by the youth and extolling peace.
