Beautiful little park in the redwoods a few blocks from downtown Mill Valley. Don't expect sunshine since you are in a redwood grove. Popular destination for people taking the ferry from SF to Sausalito or Tiburon.

Quaint park full of redwood trees right in Mill Valley. A creek runs through the park and it's a great place for families. A short walk from downtown Mill Valley. Right next to the public library. Beautiful, natural spot.

Visit this little park, worth the walk through the redwoods. There was a little park area with swings for the kids and a creek . Enjoyed it!

Beautiful grove of old redwoods right next to the Mill Valley Library and the beginning of the Dipsea Trail. Land around the creek is very eroded and creek degraded by too much use. Also many invasive plants, but local groups are working to restore the...More
