The Park is located near Torrens Park stretching from Parkers Road and Andersons Avenue in the west to Brownhill Creek Reserve in the east and from Old Belair Road and James Road in the south to Weemala Drive and Mitcham Cemetery in the north.

Randell Park is an excellent place for walking and a number of trails visit the old quarry faces. The park has an impressive range of geological features such as ripple rock, ochre and cliff faces of quarries. Other geological highlights include interbedded felspathic quartzite, siltstone, shale, slate and freestone. The reserve is full of indigenous vegetation such a Grey Box, Drooping Sheoak and Golden Wattle.

Randell Park is named after Peter Lake Randell a former landbroker and Mayor of the City of Mitcham from 1968 to 1971.

Between 1860 and 1950 the quarries in Randell Park were operated extensively supplying stone for local road repairs, road metal, curbing, paving, concrete, street gutters and siltstone for walling in houses and buildings.
