Cecilia Forest lies on the slopes between Constantia Nek and the southern boundary of Kirstenbosch. The trees are a mixture of pine plantation and indegenous species. There are many walks in the area. There are fine views of the suburbs of Cape Town, and the southern slopes of Table Mountain

Update: pines are being removed from the upper slopes, to allow fynbos regrowth.
