Env Park & Golf Course
Creation of the Mayo College Environment Park with Polo Ground and Golf Course is the fruit of the joint efforts of the Mayo fraternity and the fulfillment of a dream. Metamorphosis of this area from the arid scrub and stony waste to verdant parkland was a five year effort which started in 2004 with the assistance of the Jaipur Chapter. Thereafter the planning and designing of the Golf Course was undertaken by Ranjit Nanda Associates assisted by the Delhi Chapter. Raising of resources was a major exercise which involved a very large number of Old Boys and a sustained effort in 2007 and 2008. A modern sprinkler system for perennial irrigation has been laid out and latest maintenance equipment has been provisioned. Each of the nine fairways has three tees, i.e. 'Championship', 'Regular' or 'Ladies' meeting requirement of a regular Golf Course.
The park has myriad benefits. Apart from greening the vast tract, raising subsoil water levels and changing the climate of the area, it will be home to a large number of trees, animals and birds at the five ponds which trap the rain water. It provides students a medium for inculcating love for the habitat, a lesson in forestation, water preservation and practical experience in combating environmental degradation and preparing them to meet the challenges of the future. Creation of this course is testimony to the monumental effort of the entire Mayo fraternity, well-wishers and major help rendered by the Indian Army-kind courtesy Lt General Aditya Singh, PVSM, AVSM(Retd) who was the Project Director and Chairman, Mayo College Committee at the time of execution of the Project. The Environment Park was inaugurated by H H Maharaja Gaj Singh of Jodhpur, President General Council on 29 Nov 2008.

Danmal Mathur Museum
Jhalawar House, which currently houses the College Museum and Art School was built in 1875, by His Late Highness Maharaja Rana Zalim Singh II. He stayed at this very house during his stay in Mayo College along with his guardian.
The Museum, considered to be one of the best school museum in the world, was founded by Mr Danmal Mathur, in the year 1948-49, in the Jhalawar House. It was idea of the then Principal of Mayo College, Mr T N Vyas.
Currently, the museum has 18 rooms with 10 types of collections ranging from sculpture to geology to arms and armoury, and over 2000 artifacts. One of the most important and unique collection the museum holds is that of the Mayo History Collection, which showcases important objects, portraits, photographs, stamps and various memorabilia, showcasing the glorious history of the school.
Another unique attribute of the museum, not even a single artifact has been bought, the entire collection comprises of artifacts either acquired through donation or through collection, and the upkeep of the museum is undertaken enthusiastically by the students as well.
Another way of student participation in the museum is through the newly introduced a hands-on museum education initiative by the school, where the students attend classes of different subjects within the museum and try to solve and interpret different problems, activities, and exercises, related to their curriculum with the help of the objects present in the museum.
The collection in Danmal Mathur Museum is not only the most important and prized one but it has unique attributes as well. For such a historical, and prestigious institution, it is apparent that it will boast of a marvellous history and heritage, which should be preserved and showcased in the best way.
