Khayelitsha Wetlands Park is a wetlands area with a growing eco-system. Due to its location and extent, it presents an exceptional gateway into Khayelitsha, and showcases sustainable development.

The wetland is of important conservation value and is populated by many birds, including herons and is a nesting site for a diversity of migrant birds.

The opportunities presented by this urban wetland park include the establishment of habitat diversity, environmental education, ecotourism, economic benefits, visual relief in an urban environment, recreation and social benefits.

There is a playground for children, skate park and African mosaic murals for added interest.

History

In 1998 the Khayelitsha Wetlands Study identified various appropriate and viable land use zones within the greater Khayelitsha wetlands area. One of these zones was proclaimed as the Khayelitsha Wetlands Park.

The rehabilitation and landscaping of the Khayelitsha Wetlands Park has been a success. The aesthetically pleasing, environmentally friendly landscape design has enhanced the area and created a valued amenity for the impoverished community of Khayelitsha.
