Trafalgar Park was formally established in 1905 for the residents of District Six and was then known as the East End Plantation.
During the early decades of the 20th century, this 3 ha park consisted of a garden with flower beds and a rose garden, similar to the Company’s Garden during the same period. The southern extension of the park was covered in pine trees, which extended across the lower slopes of Table Mountain. The park also contains the French Central Redoubt (fort) which was declared a National Monument in 1968 and which has been upgraded. Continue reading
