A large public park with botanical gardens. Planted by The Dutch East India Company to stock passing ships in 1652. The public section of the garden was opened to visitors in 1848. Its many features include the oldest cultivated pear tree in South Africa. Look out for a nineteenth century well, which provided water to town residents and the garden. Its water pump is embedded in an oak tree.
