I have enjoyed this location for years. There are historic buildings, quiet spots. Man made waterfalls. This is a good spot for photo sessions. Nice to get away from it all for a little while.

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.

The Grist Mill has trails throughout that make wonderful hikes or walks. Everything is very well marked, and although close to Route 1, it is very peaceful.
