Sir James Mitchell Park is a park along the southern foreshore of Perth and lies within the suburb of South Perth from Mends Street Jetty, to just south of Heirisson Island.
It is named after Sir James Mitchell, the 13th Premier of Western Australia
It was formerly a riverside area with a number of issues regarding management. In the 1950s market gardens were closed in the area.
Since the 1970's considerable effort has been made to improve amenity, access and environmental issues.
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.
