Eaglevlei Play Park

In August 2017 we went to Stellenbosch for a weekend for a friend’s birthday and to visit my sister.  On a rainy Saturday my sister wanted to treat my 3-year old son JW with a fun outing.  We found a few options from our Google search and decided to try Eaglevlei. 

According to the Eaglevlei website they have One of the largest indoor play park areas for children in the Western Cape” and it is definitely the biggest play area I have seen.  The play area is divided in two sections.....One is for toddlers from 1 to 3 year and the other for children from 3 to 12 years old.  JW was lucky that he could play in both areas. 

The toddler area is very nice.  There is a huge pool with balls and JW spent a lot of time here diving into the balls.  He also liked hanging on the swinging balls.

The other area has a huge jungle gym with three levels. There are different obstacles to climb, lots of slides and tunnels.  Then JW discovered an area with wind blowing from pipes and is you put a ball above the wind it floats.  He spent a lot of time here playing and learning (the ball does not float is he covers the pipe with his hand).


It was very busy and I did not feel comfortable to leave JW alone in this big play area and go to the restaurant.  There is no control over who can take kids out of the play area and kids may also leave on their own.  I felt better while I could see where JW was playing.  Maybe is he was a bit older I would leave him to play while we eat in the restaurant.

After a while JW and I joined my mom and husband in the restaurant for a nice lunch.  After lunch we went back to the play park and JW played for another 30 minutes before we went home.

We all enjoyed the outing and will definitely visit again.

  1. As much as I like Eaglevlei's play area for the kids, I have the exact same problem with the setup. The restaurant is so far removed from it meaning that you need to first have your kids with you to eat, and then you all need to go camp out in the play area. It's unlike most setups where you can actually watch your kid run around while you chill in the restaurant area.
