This is the surviving six hectares of Van Riebeck's original vegetable gardens, which were planted in 1652 to provide fresh procude for the VOC's ships when the surrounding country was still off-limits to settlers. Governor Simon van der Stel added an irrigation canal. Over the years the gardens were gradually changed to a superb pleasure garden with a magnificent collection of botanical species from South Africa and the rest of the world.
