Enjoyed the evening walk through the woods in and out of Mill race park. Sitting around the pond after the walk sipping on homemade lemonade was a plan. However the uncleanliness and tons of mosquitoes made us change our plans Sad that nobody cleans the pond area. There is duck /geese poop everywhere and muddy puddles too. But if you... More

We saw this park on a architectural tour and went back later that day. They have a tower that you can walk up (elevator doesn't work) that gives you an interesting view of the city and river. They have one of the most beautiful and old covered bridges there that we've seen anywhere. Very nice.

I love Mill Race park. The People Trail runs through it. I like to walk through on it and enjoy the beautiful nature and scenery. There are even benches for when I want to take a break.

Went here on a Sunday morning. It was nearly deserted with just a few couples and some moms pushing strollers. The paths are fantastic for a walk or run. Great green space.

Visited as part of a walking tour of the city. Really loved the man made lakes and covered bridge they installed. We visited in fall when the leaves were changing and the view of the bridge and foliage on the water was spectacular. The observation tower was a short walk away. I enjoyed the exercise more than the view but... More

This is a great park being used by the locals for its intended purpose. It has everything: beautiful water features, hiking trails, biking trails, a huge hill for the kids to conquer, wide open spaces, a covered bridge, a climbing tower/overlook and wonderful views from every corner. We walked there from downtown in just a few minutes - and the... More

Great park with ample facilities, walking trails and open areas. t lunch the place had several picnickers. Runs beside the river with lots of features. Climb the tower, drive through the covered bridge, walk the river or just throw a ball and enjoy. A green space the people of Columbus should treasure.

Park is not too large. It is easily accessible by the road which traverses through it. Convenient attractive recreation for viewing the river, picnicking, lawn games, short hikes and short bicycle rides. Not too many would spend all day here but rather part of a day. Small children's play ground available. Although not a very big hill, the best winter... More

Met friends for a Sunday morning hike and had a great time. This park is scenic with a great trails system. We did a short 4 mile trek but you can go for miles from this park. The covered bridge and large oval lake make for beautiful photos. Lots of picnic opportunities and playground equipment for the kids. The river... More
