Cape Town’s very own amusement park, Ratanga Junction, officially closed down on May 1, 2018. Since then, the Rabie Property Developers Group has been hard at work building transforming the space into a new and improved location.

The Group previously announced plans to redevelop the plot into a “vibrant mixed-use precinct” that would “embrace the existing canals, island, and public open space, and include residential apartments, offices, hotels, restaurants and convenience retail”, said Rabie director, John Chapman.

On January 26, the Group shared that the massive Century City plot is currently being transformed into an extensive water body and public park adjacent to Bridgewater One, and will be the second-largest habitat for some of the area’s amazing birdlife after Intaka Island.

“Ratanga Park’s water will connect with the existing canals, which means that you can SUP or row from one end of the precinct to the other. Maybe you can even surf on a windy day,” added the Group.
