21.4-acre district park that offers a wealth of active recreational opportunities.
Mitchell Park received national and international acclaim when it opened in 1957. Â Designed by Robert Royston, it was a new kind of park, with a variety of recreational activities geared to people of all ages. Â The park map featured 29 activities that included above ground "gopher holes" and a miniature freeway system in the tiny tot area; a circular slab for roller skating; and designated areas for shuffleboard, bocce, tennis, and picniking. Over the years the park's glory faded as budgets became tight. Â Funds finally became available in the 1990s to upgrade Mitchell Park "infrastructure" and Mitchell Park amenities.
