Description

Donkin Reserve, located off Belmont Terrace, Central, and overlooking the city, was proclaimed an open space in perpetuity by Sir Rufane Donkin.
The Donkin Reserve, Pyramid and Lighthouse includes a Stone Pyramid Monument with a touching inscription erected by Sir Rufane Donkin in memory of his late wife, Elizabeth, after whom the city was named, as well as palm-lined walkways and benches.

The Pyramid is approximately 10 meters high and the sides at the base measure about 8 meters each.

The Lighthouse, which was built in 1861, also houses Nelson Mandela Bay Tourism, the official Tourist Information Centre. The Lighthouse is open to the public on request between 08h00 & 16h30 weekdays and Saturdays 09H30-15H30. Please report to the Tourism Office for access.

The Donkin Reserve forms part of Route 67 and the Donkin Heritage Trail.
