This is a really nice park in the middle of the city. However you would never know that it was in the city. There are a lot of lakes and hiking trails to go on, be sure to check out the mill located near the center of the park.

Such a beautiful place to run, walk or bike. Also hiking the trails is challenging and beautiful full of hidden surprises like waterfalls & ponds. The views are spectacular during all the seasons.

This park is excellent place to go with young kids who likes hiking in nature but aren't big enough for hard treka. The area is beautiful and very easy to walk. There are all kinds of walking section ( our favorite is Lanterns Mill) and it is a lot of fun to all. Give it between two to four hours,... More

Hiking trails, Fellows Riverside Gardens, Lily Pond, Bike path, Ford Nature Center, can't list all the activities available. Just check out the web site. If you are in the area, you don't want to miss this beautiful park. Whenever I have free time, this is my go to spot.

I love 2 blocks from the park and I walk there every day. I also drive through every night on my way home from work to spot deer and other animals. It's the best thing in town. Always clean, safe and beautiful. I love the lily pond also. Rose garden is outstanding. I wish there was a road race through... More

What a gift to the city and the people of Youngstown. You can hike, walk, run, visit the gardens, whatever your pleasure. Play golf, or just have a picnic by one of the lakes. Everyone needs to be reminded of the shear beauty of this vast park. Check out the mill and the suspension bridge.

Mill Creek is a beautiful oasis in the middle of Youngstown that is a preserved natural park. Hundreds of acres..the n"old mill" is an early 1800s grist mill that has been restored to operation on the creek. The Gardens are a sight to behold.. a great place for weddings and wedding photo's (ours included). Fall colors are a wonder.
