Mills Riverside Park is a fantastic public park with an off-leash area for dogs, several trails, picnic shelters, athletic fields, and even a summer concert series. The park spans 216 acres of meadow and forested land with a scenic river bordering it on one side and spectacular views of Mount Mansfield found in the eastern portion of the park. The forested South Hill rises from the meadows to a wildlife habitat that is off limits.
Purchased by the Jericho Underhill Land Trust in 1999, the park was given to the Jericho Underhill Park District, which owns and manages it today. The park is open to all forms of non-motorized recreation including nordic skiing, biking, horseback riding, and snowshoeing; however, these activities are permitted in open areas and pre-existing trails only.
All facilities are open to the public for non-exclusive use except during scheduled events or when they have been reserved for private use via special use permitting.
Mills Riverside Park is open from dawn to dusk, and permits for special use of facilities can be found here.
