Westridge Gardens situated in the residential part of Mitchells Plain, features a variety of botanically significant flora, including the indigenous Cape fynbos. There is a pathway for gentle walks, and the grassy areas provide ample space for picnics and taking wedding photographs. A skateboard ramp situated in the park attracts the younger section of the population, and is well frequented. Community concerts and festive programmes are held here annually, which include the popular summertime Concerts in the Park and the Mitchells Plain Festival.

Westridge Gardens has been undergoing continuous changes over the last few years. In 2010 it received a major boost when R200 000 was received from the Urban Renewal Fund grant and R103 000 from ward allocations in ward 78. Part of this funding went to establish a rose garden, which is now in full bloom.

The public open space in Westridge Gardens can be hired for events and small functions, and is frequently used for weddings and children’s parties. For more details on hiring the area see the brochure, and contact details.

History

The Westridge Gardens is in Mitchells Plain which is located on the Cape Flats on the False Bay coast between Strandfontein and Khayelitsha.

At the official opening of the Rose Garden on 19 April, 2011, a member of the Executive Mayoral Committee stated that Westridge Gardens was a model for transformation of a public park and that the beautiful, peaceful, well-kept and well utilised garden can be regarded as a bench-mark for future park improvement projects.
