Mill Creek Park
123 McKinley Ave
Youngstown, OH 44509
I remember going to Mill Creek Park way back when I was a wee one. Me and my 2nd grade class hopped aboard a school bus and drove out to the ultimate Youngstown oasis and explored high and low! That, however, was just the first of my many visits to this magnificent park. Mill Creek Park is HUGE. And I am not just saying that because it seemed so for an elementary student. I am saying that because it literally is 4,400 acres of spectacular greenspace, which makes it the LARGEST metropark in Ohio!!
Another point of interest at Mill Creek Park is the Suspension Bridge, sometimes referred to as the Silver Bridge, the Cinderella Bridge, or simply "the Bridge" (regulars know what you're talking about). It's an iron link bridge that has a regal look to it. On any given summer day, you're bound to spot a few wedding parties taking photos on the bridge (my cousin just did!). It's perfect for photo ops or romantic strolls.
