This is a pleasant, small city park that one should keep in mind when in need for a short, relaxing stroll. It offers a small zoo and a good restaurant which also offers a garden menu. The place becomes too busy with pick-nicking families during week ends.

Not the best tea garden. Too overpriced for the quality and quantity of food provided. The service is shocking too. I do not feel safe visiting Mitchells Park. The zoo is a ok, not bad, but not great. I chose the Botanical Gardens anyday.

Great park and perfect for the little ones to play on the playground. There is also a restaurant that has lovely light lunches and great place to enjoy a sundowner.

Wish someone would pump some money into the park. It's very cute... really close to the animals... but their areas need upgrade. The park for picnics and parties is popular.
