Donkin Reserve

Donkin Reserve

The Donkin Reserve was created by Sir Rufane Donkin who established the town of Port Elizabeth in 1820, along with 4000 settlers. In memory of his wife, he constructed and curious-looking pyramid in the centre of the park, which bears the inscription, "To the memory of one of the most perfect of human beings who has given her name to the town."

The Port Elizabeth Lighthouse built in 1861 is also located in the reserve and is now the home of the Port Elizabeth tourist information office. Visitors can take a tour the lighthouse which houses a small museum with memorabilia from the Donkin estate, and also provides a spectacular view of the city. A tour map of the historical Donkin Heritage Trail is available at the tourism office downstairs.
