This time during our 2 week winter break in Durban we visited People’s Park three times. It is beyond doubt the best children’s playground that I have ever visited. The equipment in the playground is fantastic! I love the soft beach sand in the play area, if the children fall they can’t get seriously hurt, just dust themselves off and carry on playing.
The grand Moses Mabhida stadium stands over the children like a proud parent.
Around the play area is a large glassy smooth concrete area where children practice their skills on anything with wheels, from roller blades to bicycles. If they come a cropper there can be no nasty grazes.
The cherry on top for parents is the People’s Cafe, an excellent, well priced restaurant. In April I had a yummy roast veg burrito, which cost a mere R34. This time I spotted brownies on the menu for R19, for an extra R10 you can add a coffee, cappuccino or tea. The brownies were delicious and the serving generous. Cliff proclaimed that the cappuccino was the best we had during our holiday.
There is no entry fee at People’s Park and if you visit for the 1st time, it certainly won’t be the last.
I only wish that we had something similar in Jo’burg. Durban comes up trumps again!
