Attended the Mill Valley Fall Arts Festival this past weekend, September 17 & 18. What an incredible weekend enjoying the magnificent redwoods. The smell of fall was in the air. Enjoyed looking at all the artists creations as well as the visual and olfactory stimulation. All 5 senses were tantalized!!! (There were food and libation booths at the perimeter). It... More

The park is a lovely place to picnic and see some of the old railroad remnants. It's surrounded by redwoods and offers a cool respite on a hot day.

Old Mill Park is full of hidden forts and castles, gnomes peeking round the fallen redwoods, fairies whirling through the brittle leaves piled high on the forest floor, and other myriad enchantments that captivate the young and young at heart. The peace of this magestic sanctuary is not to be missed. It was here long before and long enjoyed prior... More

Playground, stream, and trails through the Redwood trees. My children loved exploring as did I. It is right next to the Mill Valley library, which is very pretty. Well worth a visit. See the Redwood trees without huge crowds. Let the kids blow some steam off from site seeing or have a picnic.

Very neat little park in the redwoods. Great place to relax. Nice play area for children. There's a couple areas where a group of people could get together.

This is a very nice park with a playground for children. It's tucked away very close to downtown Mill Valley and easy to miss. A great place to take carry out or a picnic. Love sitting among the redwoods next to a stream. The nearby library is also interesting to see.

Old Mill Park is close to the central part of town and the city library is adjacent to it. It is close to my home so my wife and I visit it often. We walk our dog there weekly. I’ve conducted a couple of weddings and one Celebration of Life event there. “In 1834, John Thomas Reed was assigned the... More

You don't have to go to Muir Woods or other tourist attractions to view the splendor of California's Redwood trees. Mill Valley has gorgeous trees in their own Old Mill Park. Enjoy walking through this park and take in a bit of history. This is the area where trees were milled in the early days of development. The old mill... More

This is a sweet little Redwood park located near the Mill Valley Library - which is a Do Not Miss Library. You will thank me for that tip

It's such a gift to have these magnificent redwoods right in town. With the rains the cascading water in the creek gives the park additional serenity, beauty and charm. Just wonderful!
