Mitchell Park received national and international acclaim when it opened in 1957. Designed by Robert Royston, it was a new kind of park, with a variety of recreational activities geared to people of all ages. 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 picnicking. Over the years the park’s glory faded as budgets became tight. Funds finally became available in the 1990s to upgrade Mitchell Park “infrastructure” and Mitchell Park amenities.
