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 we are a little biased about skylines because we come from Chicago.

This is a great park being used by the locals for its intended purpose. It has everything: beautiful water features, hiking trails, biking trails, a huge hill for the kids to conquer, wide open spaces, a covered bridge, a climbing tower/overlook and wonderful views from every corner. We walked there from downtown in just a few minutes - and the walk is supremely interesting with all kinds of cool artwork and architecture at every turn. We were there at dusk and felt very safe, as there were just ordinary people enjoying the park; not a ruffian or ne'er do well in sight! Mill Race Park - What a terrific asset for this beautiful town.
