False Bay Coastal Park provides a range of activities across its components with the potential to increase these in a managed and sustainable manner for all the citizens of Cape Town and beyond, as well as for tourists.
Rondevlei Activities include:
A museum displaying static samples of some of the local bird and mammal species.
An aquarium with a selection of the local fish species showing their feeding and breeding habits.
Live display of a selection of reptiles and small mammals including an 'in house' family of porcupines.
Boat trips to observe secluded water bird habitats at close quarters with perhaps a glimpse of one or more of the resident Hippopotamus pod.
A lecture room with projection facilities for 'in house' events, environmental education as well as for public hire.
A multi function conference 'boma' able to accommodate large meetings and tourist groups.
The reserve provides Environmental Education to about 7000 local children and is visited by approximately 8000 international tourists per year.
Zeekoeivlei Activities include:
Incorporated in the yacht club is the Alfred Rowing Club, the oldest rowing club in South Africa, offering a rowing venue for both club members as well as for prominent schools.
University of Cape Town Yacht Club (UCTYC) situated at the end of the peninsula provides a sailing and rowing venue for students of this university.
Zeekoeivlei Environmental Education Programme (ZEEP) on the Western shore offers environmental education programs to many thousands of children annually (7000) and is currently the foremost facility, of this nature, in the Southern Cape.
Cape Flats Waste-Water Treatment Ponds Activities include:
These enthusiasts have been instrumental in maintaining and recording numbers, species and habitat as well as doing regular 'ringing' of birds, caught in catch nets, over this period and in so doing provide an invaluable data resource pertaining to the avian population changes of the IBA.
The ponds, which are relatively inaccessible, have the potential to offer managed fishing to the fresh water fishing community and would be attractive to international anglers that otherwise travel to Canada to catch the 'big one'.
Future options are to have nature walks throughout the park, to take advantage of the seasonal variations to flowers, birds and game, and would include routes through this section.
The False Bay Coastal Park website-monitoring.html Activities include:
The Zeekoeivlei Environment Education Programme (ZEEP) includes the website-monitoring.html site in its environmental message to attendees, a message that will in time lead to a change in how solid waste may be sorted at source and remove items recycled instead.
The coastal strip including the beach along the False Bay Ecology Park right up to Sunrise Circle is extensively used as a recreation node, surf fishing and tourism scenic drive area.
