Maynardville Park, Wynberg, Cape Town, Western Cape, South Africa


Maynardville Park, home of the famous open-air theatre, is best known for the annual Shakespeare in the Park productions. This magnificent green gem features a vibrant bird population, a large water feature, it is pet friendly and there is a children’s playground. There are a vast number of trees that dot the landscape, including lemon-scented gum trees and the diagonally trunked Mediterranean cork oak, a favourite among tree climbers.

The park hosts a number of community activities throughout the year including carnivals, markets, fairs, motor shows and wedding receptions. It is also a favourite year-round picnic destination - Maynardville Park is a birdwatching paradise. Bird aficionados can enjoy sightings of cattle egrets, moorhens, hadedas, sacred ibis, Egyptian geese, red-knobbed coots and reed cormorants.

Maynardville is now managed by Maynardville Park Action Committee, a partnership between the City of Cape Town and the Wynberg community.
