Old Mill Park is an open park along the Rappahannock River located on Caroline Street. Our most popular park, Old Mill features open fields, picnic shelters, a playground, restrooms and river front views. This park is situated along the Rappahannock River with a canoe/kayak boat launch. The Rappahannock River Heritage Trail passes directly by Old Mill Park and is a popular spot for walkers to access the trail. Old Mill is a perfect rental location for your next event!
