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.

This place is so peaceful and serene. When our children were little, they learned to fish in the stocked pond at Newlin Grist Mill. Velveeta cubes can be purchased....no worms necessary! I have attended a lovely wedding here and have enjoyed many nature walks. Great...More
