Port Elizabeth's most iconic site

The Donkin Reserve has always been an iconic site in Port Elizabeth.  It has links to the early history of the town and how it got its name plus who doesn't know the famous lighthouse and pyramid combination on the square.  With the development of Route 67 and its public art pieces on and around the Donkin Reserve, it has now truly cemented itself as one of Port Elizabeth's "must see" iconic attractions.  The Donkin isn't just about history anymore.  Now its an mix of history and art, stories and symbolism along with the best view site in town, the top of the Donkin Lighthouse.

  1. How well I remember my first sight of that memorial. I was 10 years old and my parents had taken us on a "cultural" trip to the Cape, from the Castle and Groot Constantia to the Donkin memorial, etc, then back to school in Joburg.
