The park has a large shady area to picnic. If you cross the bridge, you go back in time to when canal boats were the way to travel. A reproduction of a canal boat is docked in the canal. There is a mile tow path that is in use by mule, mule driver, and canal boat Wednesday-Saturday for a $7 fee. The boat actually goes through a functioning lock. The mill is in excellent condition and has many hands-on items, maps, informational readings from canal times.
