“Getting away from the city.”
Reviewed 8 July 2014 via mobile

The trails you can take around lantermans mill are incredible. The mill itself is great with a working water wheel you can go down and see.. but truly the trails around it are great. I love getting away from the city to take in nature. It's amazing this place is in the middle of cities.

“A beautiful spot”
Reviewed 24 June 2014

Well worth the trip. Took my nephews to see the covered bridge and the mill. There are great trails around the area and lots to take in right near the mill. We didn't go on the tour, but it looked good. The falls are beautiful.

“Exciting and Educational”
Reviewed 18 June 2014

We visited the mill because we were in the area and had never seen a mill before. We did not expect it to be so fascinating. The park was free and it was only about $5 for our family of 5 to come inside the working mill and get a personal tour. There was also a small general store that had old time general store prices. Marbles were a nickel each and candy sticks only twenty cents. The explanation from the man running the place was really interesting. We had not expected any kind of formal tour at all for the little money we paid to enter and ended up getting a private education about how the mill worked as well as how it was built a little bit of local history and the current function of the mill in the community. This was not dry information but instead an interactive experience perfectly tailored to keep our 9 & 6 year olds' attention. He really got them thinking and understanding how everything worked and excited about the knowledge, which was really impressive considering we had been running around all day and how a mill works is not exactly the kind of thing that would normally interest them much. We homeschool but hadn't really considered that this outing would be a part of that. I HIGHLY suggest a visit to any other homeschoolers; you won't regret it. We'll certainly be back to tour the mill again and see some more of the park. What we did see was beautiful. There's also a covered bridge (it's a recreation from the 1980s unlike the mill which was authentic). A lovely place to spend an interesting day.

“Highlight of Mill Creek Park”
Reviewed 15 April 2014

If you are a photographer of any level, you must visit Lanterman's Mill. But, it's not just a building, with it's waterfalls, it's a working mill and a historical site as well. I've done a four season picture there. beautiful in all seasons.

“Relaxing”
Reviewed 7 April 2014 via mobile

Loved going to the mill, having a tour was great to see a working water mill. The best part however are the trails around the mill..it's just so beautiful. It's wonderful to get a break from the city and see such a lovely historic park.
