NOTE: The City has abandoned this area, just in the few blocks around Mitchell Park, and it is not really a place you can bring your kids or feel safe walking.

Mitchell Park used to be a lovely park in downtown San Luis Obispo with a fun playground for kids. Kids could ride their tricycles in glee on the path that circles the playground, and enjoy the colorful hopscotch station. 
The park has a tall, whimsical sculpture of children playing, as well as a large lawn, gazebo, and redwood trees. 
In autumn when the deciduous trees change to orange and red, Mitchell Park is particularly pretty. You can see Cerro San Luis, or M mountain, from Mitchell Park!
Walk just three blocks to Higuera Street for a treat after your kids are done playing!
While in SLO, don't miss out on the most amazing playground of all at Sinsheimer Park.
