There is plenty to do for the little ones. the animals and park activities will keep them entertained for mot of the day. A great place to celebrate birthdays and functions or just to sit around and have a picnic with... More

Going to this park for many years and am saddened by the current state of the venue. Due to the slowly decline, it prevents one from returning to the park. I have good memories from school outings and wish a revitalization would occur.

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.

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
