Admiral's Garden

Cape Town, Simon's Town, Western Cape 7995, South Africa

Created By: Simon's Town Historical Society


The Admiral's garden was originally Mrs Hurter's garden where produce was grown to supply her Lodging House and from which surplus was probably sold to the town's folk and the Navy. After the property was purchased by the Admiralty it continued to serve a similar purpose in providing Admiralty House and other Naval establishments with fresh produce. A wall was built in 1861 to enclose the garden. Now somewhat neglected.
