Battery Park, V&A Waterfront

Decorative LED lighting solution for Skate & Scooter Park and Multi-Court

We have supplied the decorative LED lighting solution for Battery Park at the V&A Waterfront in Cape Town, South Africa.

Battery Park is a urban park that forms the gateway to the V&A Waterfront, integrating Cape Town’s CBD and the V&A Waterfront through a series of pedestrian routes. Visitors to the park are able to engage in a range of outdoor recreation, entertainment and retail activities in various levels of public spaces. The site is also of archaeological importance as it still contains the rear ramparts of the historical Amsterdam Battery, one of the oldest structures in Cape Town. Source:

High-quality recreational spaces

In a bid to make Battery Park accessible and interesting for all ages, there’s a free public skate and scooter park. It is the first skate park of this quality built within the city to world class skate park standards using lightweight construction. Also, the multi-court is suitable for general basketball and or mini soccer games during the week or weekends. With adjustable hoops this makes it accessible for younger players. Source:

Lighting to enjoy the facilities when the sun sets

High-quality lighting was essential so the facilities could be used on those long summer nights to cool down and during the winter months when the sun sets early.

Our ZELA post top LED luminaires and LEDPOST bollards were the luminaires of choice due to their aesthetic appearance and performance.

The elegant ZELA with its timeless shape is ideal for applications where energy saving, low maintenance and precise light control considerations are important factors. This LED post top emits a pleasant, glare-free light, making it the perfect luminaire for architectural spaces. The ZELA offers a cost-effective lighting solution for the creation of ambiance.

The LEDPOST bollard with its distinct design incorporates a highly efficient LED light source. Light pollution is avoided because there is no spill light emitted in an upward direction. The easy-to-install LEDPOST offers energy savings of up to 70% and low maintenance requirements.

Safe and vibrant community park 

The renovation of this area on the waterfront of Cape Town has provided visitors and locals with a much-needed recreational sanctuary where they can spend time outdoors practising their favourite sports or simple relaxing with a magnificent view of Table Mountain.

The lighting enhances the joyful character of the park, as well as ensuring that users feel safe and secure, and can continue to use the facilities of the park as natural light fades.
Both the local authorities and the community are delighted with the result. 

We locally develops and manufactures LED lighting products, designed and suitable for African conditions. We are very proud to be associated with Element Consulting Engineers in providing a successful decorative LED lighting solution for this prestigious project.
