The park named after John Shelton

For the second time in a week I visited a park with a little monument and plaque while Geocaching.    This time it was John Shelton Park in Humewood.  So who was John Shelton? John Shelton was the Director of Parks for Port Elizabeth until his retirement in the late 1970’s and played an important role in the establishment of Mannville Open Air Theatre in St. George’s Park in 1972.

    Just the kind of information I love – Thanks Jonker. We should develop a local Trivial Pursuit.
