Infecting the City 2012
City Treasurers - Floral Kingdom

A beautiful legacy at the Cape Town Station: a kingdom of indigenous plants

When:

MON-FRI:  09H00 to 15H00

Where:

Festival Hub, cnr. Adderley and Strand Sts.

The Festival has secured the aid of the Central City Improvement District (CCID) to replant the rockeries located on the Strand Street edge of the Forecourt. These gardens will be redeveloped in celebration of the fynbos Treasures of the Cape.

‘We see this greening project as part of the general beautification of the City – the Cape Town Station garden is the start of the Fan Walk to the Stadium where visitors will now be able to enjoy the newly developed Green Point Park,’ says Tasso Evangelinos from CCID.

With over 9000 different plant species, the Cape Floral Kingdom is the smallest but richest of the world’s six floral kingdoms.

Stroll over and chat to the students of Kirstenbosch Botanical Gardens who will be planting every Festival morning, and admire our Natural Wonders. They’re our birthday present to the Station on its 150th anniversary.

Thanks to: CCID and Kirstenbosch National Botanical Gardens (SANBI)
