Mill Creek Park: Lake Glacier and Lily Pond

Bob and I spent this past Saturday (August 9th) at Mill Creek Park, a metropolitan park located in Youngstown, Ohio.  Our first stop was at Fellows Riverside Gardens, which I blogged about yesterday.  Mill Creek Park contains three man-made lakes, a pond and a wetland.  When our visit to Fellows Riverside Gardens ended, we rode around the west side of Lake Glacier to Lily Pond.

We spent a few minutes at the Lake Glacier Dam and then continued our ride in Mill Creek Park to Lily Pond.

It is very easy to leave Mill Creek Park and enter a residential area.  That is what happened when we departed Lily Pond.  We found our way back to the park on U.S. Route 62, near where there a bridge crossing Mill Creek provides a wonderful view of Lanterman’s Mill.

WP_20140809_012I didn’t like the sun’s position at the time we stopped, so we decided to eat lunch and return to Lanterman’s Mill later in the afternoon.

We lunch at Thano’s Family Restaurant in Canfield, which was only a few miles from Mill Creek Park.  My friend, Marge, and I ate at this restaurant last year when we visited Mill Creek Park. Marge and I enjoyed lunch there at that time.  Bob and I enjoyed lunch there as well.  I highly recommend this restaurant, if you are in the area!

In my next blog post I will share a few more photographs of Mill Creek Park sights and save photographs of Lanterman’s Mill for my final blog post of our visit to Mill Creek Park.
