“what a gem!”
Review of Mitchell Park

Mitchell Park
Ranked #15 of 124 things to do in Durban
Attraction details
Reviewed April 18, 2013

I was totally blown away by this public park... MOST parks in SA are NOT like this at all. The gardens are beautiful, grass green and the trees leafy. The park is filled with families and the play ground well kept and FULL. There is a zoo in this park and the entrance fee is CHEAP!!! The kids loved the animals. Delightful and well worth a visit

Excellent palce to go if the weather is hot and you are tired of the beach. Large tree and beautiful grass with well tended flower gardens make it a pleasurable escape from the Durban heat. Lovely garden cafe to have tea and snacks. Children love the small animals in the mini zoo

I went on this trip as it said there was a zoo there and lovely flowers. It was dreadful. They were just about planting flowers and shrubs ready to bloom in a few weeks and the "zoo" was very limited. Just outside the entrance to the "zoo" is a childrens playground and there were hundreds of them screaming and shouting. More like a creche than a lovely place to go. The only upside was the Senior Concessionary fee of only R2 to go in!!!!

We had a lovely picnic here with the whole family.
There is a huge playground for the kids to run around in and plenty space for parents to relax on the grass but keep an eye on the little ones.

There's a small zoo with a variety of birds, reptiles, marsupials etc. Very cheap entry fee. Surrounded by a lovely tree-filled park, with a kiddies playground area. There's also a tea garden and restaurant which are worth a visit. Great place to take the kids.
