Mature trees shade innocent dreams on a leisurely laze at Mitchell Park. The lawn lends itself to family picnics and solo siestas with the occasional musical accompaniment from the band rotunda.

Flowerbeds and zoo animals share the same generous portion of well manicured Africa. Additional animals were added to this once unprofitable Ostrich farm (1910) resulting in today's pleasant collection of aviaries and menageries. Tropical fish, exotic birds, reptiles and small animals happily co-exist with colourful petals and botanical displays. The children's playground hosts many giggles and cartwheels but is also friendly to physically challenged children.

The Blue Zoo Restaurant refreshes park visitors and when the breeze brushes in the right direction one can smell the velvet nectar from the adjacent Jameson Park. Jameson Park once a pineapple plantation is now the rose haven of Durban, displaying 600 rose bushes (200 species) despite local subtropical climatic conditions.
