We really liked Mitchell Park. It was shaded by huge trees along along the perimeter. The playground structure was new and well-kept with options for both toddlers and older children.
We appreciated the large grassy area and gazebo. We have seen the homeless population that others mentioned, but have had no problems with them.
There were bathrooms located near the playground.
This park would make a great option for a picnic near downtown SLO. It is within walking distance of all the shops and restaurants.
My 3 year old loves Mitchel Park! It has a great play structure that offers activities for children young and old. The park is clean and has benches around the structure for parents to sit. I love the open grassy area with Oak Trees and room to roam. There is a rather large homeless population that uses the lawn area but I've never had a problem. My biggest complaint is that on occasion they will be smoking near the playground. In this case, we up and leave.
I really like this park. It has a great play gym for the kids to play on - which is both toddler & older kid friendly. I really like that the park is surrounded by grass rather than a parking lot so your kids cannot run out in front of cars. Great place to take a picnic to and make a fun afternoon out of it with the family!
