A Park run by Friends of Muizenberg Park.
Muizenberg Park falls within the Fynbos Biome; originally, the natural vegetation would have been a mix of Peninsula Sandstone Fynbos on the upper reaches (Nationally Endangered and legally protected) and Peninsula Granite Fynbos (Critically Endangered and legally protected) on the lower granite soils transitioning to Sandveld. The City of Cape Town’s Biodiversity Network suggests that this habitat has local conservation significance. There are still remnants of Granite Fynbos in the upper reaches of the Park – and if properly managed, rare species of fynbos may be re-discovered. FoMP is working towards restoring this area and in time, creating an educational “Fynbos Walk” by building a board walk and placing signage to provide information on the natural and cultural heritage in Muizenberg Park.
