Halfway Riebeeckstraat there is a 'Vogelklas' (bird school). Initially set up for school children but they come less and less. It's sort of a bird hospice. If a sick bird is found, it can be left here in one of the boxes (photo 3) and then it is taken care of. The foreign children don't really care much for birds. Sometimes they catapult one out of a tree and then bring it to the hospice!
Photo 4 is a tiny botanical garden. Photo 2 is the entrance. It was closed but we could see it well through the wiring.
