Experience Century City
Beautifully landscaped, intelligently designed, and immaculately maintained, Century City offers an outstanding quality of life.
The precinct pulsates with energy, vibrancy, and focus, but also offers moments of utter relaxation.
Here you can experience some of the greatest shopping South Africa has to offer, and within minutes of leaving the retail paradise of Canal Walk, you can experience the intense peace of Intaka Island, an award-winning wetlands nature reserve.
Take a boat ride, see an outdoor movie, pick a restaurant, go canoeing or stand-up paddling, take a moonlit hike, follow an art trail — the enormous variety of entertainment and leisure options are all part of what makes Century City a totally unique destination.
Sports of all sorts
Century City’s wonderful network of walking, running, and cycling trails is a constant invitation to enjoy outdoor exercise in a pristine environment.
The precinct even boasts its own sports clubhouse, looking out over the green field of Central Park, which serves as a venue for everything from touch rugby and alfresco aerobics to organic markets and open-air cinema. It also serves as the start and finish of the increasingly popular five-kilometre park runs.
The Clubhouse is home to Century City’s Athletics Club, Canoe Club, Stand-Up Paddling Club, an Adventure Bootcamp for Women, and the summer and winter touch rugby leagues. It is available for rental for business meetings and training, as well as various events and gatherings.
Century City also offers several gyms, from a flagship Virgin Active to the Edison Way Crossfit, and a much-loved Fives Futbol facility.
Over 200 types of indigenous fynbos flora and over 120 bird species may be found on Intaka Island, Century City’s award-winning 16-hectare wetlands and bird sanctuary.
Intaka, which means “bird” in Xhosa, is a one-of-a-kind example of natural protection and urban growth coexisting together. Apart from its environmental value, the region provides a tranquil setting in which to wander, rest, and unwind from the stresses of daily life.
