Mill Creek Park is so beautiful. There are many paths and lakes and wildlife to enjoy. Beautiful bridges and rock walls and secret places. I loved growing up with Mill Creek Park down the street. Many playgrounds and ice skating and sled hills. Take the time to tour the park.

Hi James, Thanks for your great review of Mill Creek MetroParks! However, we are not actually the largest metropolitan park in the USA. We were the first park district established in the state of Ohio, though! Volney Rogers founded Mill Creek Park in 1891 as Ohio's First Park District. More

This is one of the nicest city parks around. It has a beautiful 36 hole golf course. The park extends from route # 224 to the downtown area.
