Backyard Adventures: Mill Race Park

One of my favorite things about my town is the awesome local parks we have to explore (when we can't get away and visit the really spectacular national parks, which, by the way, are free Aug. 14-15!)

I was also inspired by this photo contest that the Pioneer Woman has been hosting for the last week or so. While my photography skills are seriously lacking, you'll be blown away by some of these shots.

So to combine these two fun things (parks and water... woohoo!) I wanted to share a photo of a recent visit to Mill Race Park here in Columbus, Indiana. Perfect for a stroll or a great spot for a first fishing trip, as its safe for the kiddos and they won't fall in (unless they try really, really hard.)

Doesn't our little arrow look pretty relaxed? A good park and some sparkling blue water on a sunny day will do that to you. What are your favorite local parks?

This post is part of Spotlight Thursday over at Trekaroo. Check it out to see what other families are up to this week!


  1. well, kids can always fall in if they try hard enough! what a great park - thanks for sharing!

  2. The park looks gorgeous! Thanks for playing along with Spotlight Thursdays! We hope to see you again next week!

  3. Thanks for stopping by the site today! Have fun at the zoo! We have yet to go to the Cincy zoo. If you want, you can share about your experience on our site through the "share your experience" link. Have a great weekend!

  4. Mill Race is probably my favorite park in Columbus. Years ago it looked quite different. After a major flood (it floods quite easily...if you haven't yet experienced that), it underwent a ton of redevelopment. That was in the early 90s. While I love the old park, I love the new(ish) version, too.
