A group of us packed a picnic lunch, took a rugby ball and enjoyed an lovely afternoon relaxing in the park with many other families also playing various ball games. There is also a park with swings and things for the kids, & the Zoo right there which is also definitely worth a visit.

Had visited this park after 17yrs, it brought back such wonderful memories of being there with my family & to have taken my 2yr old son there was just awesome.

The park has a nice playground and a very nice cafe (Blue Zoo). It also is home to a small zoo. Beautiful gardens and a plenty of very nice spots for picnics. Be aware of the wild monkeys that live there. They are nice but aggressive when it comes to stealing your food!

Park is great for a picnic. Fabulous restaurant called blue zoo. Children enjoy the swings and a small zoo that has lots of different birds and few animals. Park needs to be revamped.

Took the kids to Mitchell which they love. They love to see the variety of birds and monkeys and also all the other little interesting animals on show. Cages were clean and animals appeared healthy and well fed. Sadly some cages could do with a revamp and did appear small and/or boring for the inhabitant, some were a bit overgrown... More

Area is relatively well maintained. The addition of the little wooden café / tucks shop is well received. Have not been here in a while so was pleasantly surprised. Not a fan of the poor joey Kangaroo that was in the enclosure, he looked quite distressed so I felt sorry for him. Peacocks that walk around are so beautiful and... More

Actually went to Blue Zoo for lunch which was excellent and then went on a stroll down memory lane. My wife celebrated her first 7 birthdays there with rides on Nellie the ellie. The park is still well maintained, but they desperately need sponsors for the feed and upkeep of the birds and animals. A lovely spot to unwind for... More
