Sir James Mitchell Park
Sir James Mitchell Park is a park along the southern foreshore of Perth Water in Perth, Western Australia. It lies within the suburb of South Perth from Mends Street Jetty, to just south of Heirisson Island.
It was formerly a riverside area with a number of issues regarding management. In the 1950s market gardens were closed in the area.
The South Perth City Council considers the park, or parts of it to be suitable for hire, and it has hosted numerous events since its improvements and landscaping.
As of December 2015[update] it is a very regularly used location for cyclists, runners and dog walkers around the river, with links to a circuit that continues around the whole of Perth Water, utilising pedestrian facilities on the Narrows Bridge and the The Causeway.
