For outdoor activities mill Creek is probably the best place to go in the area. There is everything from walking/biking trails, golf courses, to fishing, and places to sled in the winter.

This was our first trip to the Youngstown/Canfield area. Our relatives took us all over the park. It is the nicest municipal park I've seen in years. There is something for everyone.

If you want a place to walk that is full of beautiful scenery then Mill Creek is your spot. The Golf course area and Lantermans Mill are my favorite areas to visit especially in the fall
