Sport and recreation has always played a fundamental part of any community. With this in mind, the City of Cape Town is committed to providing world class, safe areas where members of the community can gather to have picnics or run races. The Green Point Common has always been a central gathering place, not only for the Atlantic Seaboard community, but also for schools and sports clubs across the peninsula.

It has been designed to accommodate people with disabilities and is serviced by a parking forecourt with 396 bays. Lighting will only be provided for practice purposes and not for televised or major night time events, in compliance with the Record of Decision (ROD). Holding 5 000 seats, which is expandable to 7000 seats for special events, and state-of-the-art athletics facility- the Green Point Athletics Stadium is a hub for athletic activities in the Western Cape, for both international and national sporting events.

“The Green Point Athletics Stadium stands to become the centre of athletics throughout the Western Cape, allowing the establishment of clubs and creating a safe and enjoyable environment within our communities where children can run, parents can cheer and people can express their love for all things track and field. With this, we are preserving the memories of many years and making memories for many years to come.”

-The City of Cape Town’s Mayoral Committee Member for Community Services, Councillor Tandeka Gqada (2012)
