After the popular amusement park, Ratanga Junction, in Cape Town officially closed its doors in May 2018, the Rabie Property Group has been hard at work transforming the space into the city’s new “green space”.
Welcome to Ratanga Park
Cape Town etc reports that Ratanga Park might just be your new favourite spot to chill and immerse yourself in the beauty of Century City.
Yes, the development called Bridgewater One is a uniquely integrated family of buildings perfectly positioned between the buzz of Century City Square and the serenity of the new Ratanga Park.
Transforming the existing Century City canals
In February 2021, Natalie Du Preez, the marketing manager at Rabie Property Group told Cape Talk that the existing Century City canals were being connected with the newly shaped water body which will be open for canoers and stand-up paddlers.
What’s more, du Preez said that will be winding pathways, benches, bridges, and other landscape features to create the new public area and “green lung” in Century City, she explained. Now, it looks like most of the work is done!
“With a variety of land and water-based outdoor exercise options in beautiful landscapes, and the enhancement of rich bird-life and indigenous vegetation, Bridgewater One offers a low-stress lifestyle of balance and well-being,” its official website states.
“Whether you choose stand-up paddleboarding, kayaking, running, cycling or working out in an open-air gym, the opportunity to tone muscle and increase cardiovascular fitness in an uplifting natural environment will be perfectly delivered from your Bridgewater front door.”
