Kids love it because of the natural setting in the Redwoods with Old Mill Creek. There is a great variety of fun equipment...swings, climbing things, bridges to involve all. picnic tables, bathrooms and water are all present

I walk here with my dog almost every day. There's really no other small town park quite like it, and the library is built right into it! And once a month, the library sets up tables out of doors in the park for their book sale. Mill Creek runs right through it, and on a hot day, this is the place to be. In the summer, bring your beach chair down to watch first run movies in the park with your dogs and kids. But the best times for me have been mostly on a daily basis when hardly anyone's around: just me and my dog beneath the redwood canopy, the cathedral-like majesty of these wondrous trees. When the Fall Arts Festival is held here, it becomes quite a different place with crowds of tourists and shoppers browsing the wares of local artists, but that's fun, too---for a couple of days. Mostly, it's the serenity that attracts me to the groves, the brook, and the filtered light.

Peaceful, quiet place full of giant redwood trees only steps from the Depot in downtown Mill Valley and the Mill Valley Public Library. A few people quietly enjoying the trees, reading, walking and enjoying nature. Great park to hang out in during a hot summer day, because it always stays cool.

Not much there-- a few places for kids to play, but this park definitely needs updating--- not more to say
