Review of Mitchell Park

Mitchell Park
Ranked #19 of 137 things to do in Durban
Attraction details
Reviewed 3 July 2012

Sad to see how run down it has become. BUT the park for children is awesome (very busy though) and I have to say the curry at the tea garden/restaurant almost outdid their delicious lemon meringue pie and milkshakes.

Stayed nearby at Essenwood House and came to the park several mornings for a run. Very peaceful.

The park has been an icon for many years - i mean, i donated my rabbits to the zoo there when they were getting highly reproductive. The kids love it, as there are alot of animals to see - even crocs! The Monkeys are funny.
Just that some fountains etc need to be cleaned, as kids play around these areas. Its been a place we've known for years and will forever be close to our hearts. Also, picnics can be held after the zoo and an old fashioned play ground for the kids!
