The park is very clean and contains a fishing pond, creek, river, and history of blacksmithing. Trails are easily walkable and marked clearly.

Tour the mill, and the foundry and then walk along the creek listing the kids play on the rocks and splash about. a wonderful summer escape day. I think you can take a picnic and bring a frisbee to toss.
