We live just minutes from the Grist Mill and have been there many times over the years. The property is absolutely gorgeous with acres upon acres of tree line paths, a meadow, fishing ponds and creek not to mention the Mill itself and the other historic buildings. The Grist Mill has so many activities for families to enjoy- a fishing... More

I come here very often. I love taking the trails for long walks. There are some hidden picnic areas throughout the trails if you want to get away from the tables at the main area. They can get a bit busy on a nice summer weekend. I haven't been fishing here so I can't comment on that but there is... More

This place is great for all ages. We love to come here and have a picnic by the stream and then go for a lovely hike on their trails. They have a nice pond for fishing for the kids. And the mill is very interesting and informative. A great outing.

First of all, this is a FREE attraction with FREE parking. How often do you find that? The land includes a small waterfall, a mill race, a blacksmith shop, a log cabin, a mill with museum, and a miller's home.

Once, long ago, the Wawa-Concordville railroad went through here! It's an ancient, well-preserved piece of Delaware County history. And there are several other historic buildings, right up the street. Keep in mind that this park also has a very small, stocked fishing hole/pond where you can rent a fishing pole. It's very picturesque so don't forget your camera AND something... More
