Our family goes to the park mostly to ride on the biking trails. Very nice and well kept. Did a presentation once in the park to children for a nursing project. Lots of open areas with big beautiful trees and streams. Will definitely be back.

The park offers a great paved walking/biking path along the river and through the woods to another nearby park. The wildflowers are beautiful in spring and the leaves stunning in fall. Dogs are allowed on leash and children/teens will enjoy the play ground and sporting areas. Couples, take a leisurely drive around the park through the covered bridge near sunset.... More

Mill Race is such a beautiful park. And it's a good place for almost anything you can think of. There is a nice playground for young childen, running/walking trails, paddle boats, picnic tables, a boat launch, an ampitheater for concerts, lots of open space for Frisbee or other activities, a covered bridge and multiple ponds which are perfect backdrops for...

We so enjoyed a sunny morning for a walk by the rivers and the man made lake/pond. Very peaceful and quiet.

Enjoyed the evening walk through the woods in and out of Mill race park. Sitting around the pond after the walk sipping on homemade lemonade was a plan. However the uncleanliness and tons of mosquitoes made us change our plans Sad that nobody cleans the pond area. There is duck /geese poop everywhere and muddy puddles too. But if you... More

We saw this park on a architectural tour and went back later that day. They have a tower that you can walk up (elevator doesn't work) that gives you an interesting view of the city and river. They have one of the most beautiful and old covered bridges there that we've seen anywhere. Very nice.

I love Mill Race park. The People Trail runs through it. I like to walk through on it and enjoy the beautiful nature and scenery. There are even benches for when I want to take a break.

Went here on a Sunday morning. It was nearly deserted with just a few couples and some moms pushing strollers. The paths are fantastic for a walk or run. Great green space.

Visited as part of a walking tour of the city. Really loved the man made lakes and covered bridge they installed. We visited in fall when the leaves were changing and the view of the bridge and foliage on the water was spectacular. The observation tower was a short walk away. I enjoyed the exercise more than the view but... More
