Thomas Mitchell Park
10509 NE 46 Ave.
Mitchellville, IA 50169
: , , , ,

A tall, wooded ridge is the most prominent natural feature of this 175-acre park south of Mitchellville. Thomas Mitchell, a native of New Hampshire, built his cabin here along Camp Creek in 1844. His cabin site is no longer visible, but Polk County’s first permanent English-speaking settler is still remembered by a park monument and the town of Mitchellville which bears his name. The park offers a 49-unit campground, two picnic shelters, universally designed play area, fishing pond, and the 1-1/2 mile Devotie Trail. The park entrance is located on NE 108th Street just south of NE 46th Street between Altoona and Mitchellville.
