Old Mill Park in Roswell

During the summer we all love to get wet and wild to cool off from the hot temperatures however, I know I get tired of going to my same community pool all the time. Well not anymore, OTPers because there is a new “pool” in town — Old Mill Park, or more commonly known as Roswell Mill.

Although it is not a pool and it is actually quite old, it is a very fun and different place to take the family on a hot summer’s day.

Located on 85 Mill Street in Roswell, GA, you will see two of the more famous things the park is known for, the covered bridge and huge waterfall. Both are great for prime picture taking and also splashing around.

As a teenager I am always looking for something fun to do with my friends but on a budget. This is where Roswell Mill comes in. I don’t have to go to the neighborhood pool for the billionth time but I also don’t have to spend lots of money to go to White Water. It’s a win-win.

If you follow the path that begins on the covered bridge you will eventually be lead to the Chattahoochee River trail system. By no means am I an outdoorsy hiker but I did really enjoy walking around and seeing the pretty falls and greenery.

Whether you are outdoorsy or not this place is definitely worth a visit. If you are going to take some pretty pictures, swim around in the falls, or hike the trails, you and you family are sure to have a fun time! I know I will be back very soon with friends to have a picnic and probably another time to snap some senior pictures!
