Mills Riverside Park is also a popular spot for pet owners and includes an “off-leash” area where dogs can run and play.

    Thanks Elvira. Yes, it’s feeling a little chilly here these days! Winter is definitely on its way. Mills Riverside Park is wonderful in the winter, and it’s nice to see people take advantage of this beautiful spot all year long.
