I took my two sons ages 11 and 9 to hunt for Pokemon at Fellows Riverside Gardens. The grounds were beautiful. I had been there in the past but forgot how nice of a place this was. I would highly recommend visiting. Beautiful Flowers, landscape, views, fountains and more!!

The views of the park are fabulous. This area is pretty extensive with many flower beds, fountains and places to sit and enjoy the beauty.

Almost all the works is done by volunteers but the layout is stunning and at the same time there is a grassy lawn and trails for kids to scamper on. Best of all the plants are tagged with their names... More

Love this as a picnic spot. Beautiful views of Youngstown and Mill Creek Park. Wonderfully kept flowers and foliage throughout, as well as shade provided by gazebos and trees alike. Lovely spot for a picnic. Very attractive to photographers for landscapes or as a portrait backdrop.

Beautiful gardens are free to visit! We visited when the roses were out, the lady that works there said we missed peak bloom by two weeks but it was still gorgeous. If you go in the spring they have tulips and Daffodils everywhere! This is a must see place if you love flowers and gardens. Lots of walking!!
