Mill Creek Park: Fellows Riverside Gardens

Bob and I spent this past Saturday (August 9th) at Mill Creek Park.  Mill Creek Park, which encompasses more than 2900 acres, is a metropolitan park located in Youngstown, Ohio.  It was Bob’s first visit to the park.  I had visited the park one time before, a little more than a year ago, with my friend Marge.  During our visit in July 2013, Marge and I concentrated on two park sights — the historic Lanterman’s Mill and the suspension bridge that spans Mill Creek.  Bob and I visited those two park sights, but we visited other park sights as well.  Our first stop was at the northern end of Mill Creek Park, at Fellows Riverside Gardens.

Fellows Riverside Gardens is a twelve-acre public display garden that features a landscape of diverse and colorful plant displays and flowers, as well as scenic vistas.  We arrived at the gardens at approximately 8:30 AM.  We spent the next 1 1/2 hours exploring the grounds.

The path through the Shade Garden brought us to the Seasonal Celebration Plaza.

From Seasonal Celebration Plaza we followed a walkway through the Perennial Garden to the South Terrace.

The Kidston Pavilion provides a unique setting for weddings, as does the Gazebo located a short distance away.

From the North Terrace we wandered back toward the parking area, where we visited the Dahlia Garden and the Family Garden.

I have more photographs to share from our visit to Mill Creek Park.  Stay tuned for additional blog posts!

    Hi Linda, I loved seeing the gardens… It’s great that they offer gardens for kids too… Love it… I always enjoy going to gardens —so I guess that’s why we keep going back to Biltmore over and over, during all seasons…

    Hugs,
    Betsy
