Mill Creek Park

Hinckley Drive

Mill Creek Park is a 10-acre park located in the heart of South Portland's downtown Mill Creek-Knightville area. Featuring a large pond, Mill Creek is home to a variety of wildlife and is a great place to view aquatic birds such as Mallard ducks, Canadian geese, and the occasional Cormorant. Reptiles, amphibians and small mammals are also occasionally spotted. Popular seasonal activities include the holiday tree lighting, Winterfest, ice skating, summer concert series, and Art in the Park. Other attractions include a Veteran's monument located on the park's south side, a water fountain, and an impressive collection of native, and exotic trees and shrubs. A gazebo is available for picnicking and may also be reserved for private functions.

The park may be accessed from any of the surrounding roads. A formal garden entrance is located near the intersection of Ocean St. and Broadway. The Greenbelt Walkway passes through the center of the park, running along Trout Brook. On-street parking is available along Ocean St. and Hinckley Dr.

Park hours: Open daily, 6:00 AM - 9:00 PM.
