Mill Park, Port Elizabeth

Known as Port Elizabeth’s garden suburb because of the leafy streets and large gardens, Mill Park lies in the heart of the city, close to Greenacres Shopping centre, the Port Elizabeth golf club and St George’s Park.

Residents speak about the special quality of Mill Park - the minimal traffic that makes it safe enough for children to ride in the streets and for people to walk their dogs. And the large upmarket homes, many of them restored Victorian and Tudor-style mansions; do indeed give visitors the impression of having stepped back in time.

St George’s Park, the grounds of the second oldest cricket club in South Africa, is today home to a world-class 18 500-seater stadium, set in some of the most beautiful grounds of St George’s Park, right in the middle of the friendly city.

The site too of the Manville Open Air Theatre - used once a year by the Port Elizabeth Shakespearean Festival - St George’s Park also has two art galleries next to the Cenotaph, and a monthly ‘art in the park’ market. Besides being the oldest park in Port Elizabeth, it also has swimming baths, which include an Olympic-size with a diving area, and a children’s pool for days when the beach is a little too windy.

What a beautiful place to live and to stay during your time in PE! Mill Park is full of trees, birds and beautiful homes. It's quiet, although it's so central. Greenacres is just up the road, and the valley, with walking routes, is right on the border. Just plain lovely!
