Mitchell park is noisy with lots of kids running around. Botanical gardens is mich more relaxing. There is a playground at the park with swings and slides and there is also a little zoo with a small range of animals. Nice park to visit just once. Got great!

I took my grand daughter to Mitchell Park for an outing. She thoroughly enjoyed the visit. The park is clean and the zoo has interest creatures to visit. Not a huge variety but enjoyable nevertheless. The Restaurant at the Park Blue Zoo was a hit. Food was great and reasonably priced. Have returned to the restaurant again.

Ideal for family picnics. The accompanying zoo and park were well enjoyed by the young ones, but teenyboppers complained of boredom before long.

The gardens are lovely. Plenty of shade and a nice park for the kids to play. The zoo area is nice but needs some work. The coffee shop/restaurant is good but limited.

Lovely park, with excellent cafe/restaurant (NOT open on Xmas Day). Not much in the zoo but nice for a stroll round, especially as it was only R10 to get in!

This is a nice place to take kids. Go see the animals and later picnic outside while the kids enjoy the play area.

We took my 7 year old nephew to Mitchell Park. Blue Zoo Cafe is children friendly with supervised play areas. Food was excellent and relatively inexpensive. A visit to the Zoo was cheap and worth a visit for everyone. Large park area and outdoor jungle gym area.
