Mill Woods Park is a diverse activity park. There is a multitude of sports played here. They have a skate board course, children's playground and great walking paths. My all time favorite activity in Mill Woods is the natural swimming pool open seasonally to residents and their guests. I've enjoyed it here for 29 years, my children and grandchildren learned...

As a kid, I used to ride my bike to the park and spend hours here, swimming and playing with friends. Now that I'm an adult, I spend a lot of time here with my family, swimming, playing baseball, tennis and riding bikes on the trails and in the skate park. The park holds one of the nicest dog parks... More

This park has everything, dog park, skate park, soccer, baseball, and softball fields, tennis courts, playground and a man made pond for swimming, with sand and grass and lifeguards. Great place for the family, but it can get crowed on hot days in the summer. Enjoy!!!

Two ponds (one for town swimming, the other for waterbirds), a dog park, sports fields, and don't forget the Nature Center ($3 donation).

I had heard wonderful things about the dog park at Mill woods. The first time I tried to find it I accidentally end up at one in Rocky Hill, one town over, that was AWFUL. For the heck of it I tried again yesterday. Boy, was I glad I did. The dog park is AMAZING. There are toys galore, ramps... More

I live in Newington and my dog can't walk off leash without bolting, but he really needs to be socialized and have room to run. This park is only 5 minutes away, there is a dog park for my dog to run around in, a soccer field, a playground, a skate park, and more! My whole family loves coming here.... More
