Parking Hopping: Old Mill Park

We had a little over 30 minutes to kill before we went on a tour at the Smith Plantation in Roswell.  I had previously looked up a park in that was nearby for us to picnic at, but instead, we just went to explore!  We visited Old Mill Park, and it was absolutely beautiful!  I wish we had all day to hike around and see all the ruins and the waterfall.  We did not, so we will just have to go back another time!
I wanted to visit the park specifically to see the covered bridge.  It is beautiful, as you would expect!

Love the extra revenue stream!

I'm not sure what this building is because we didn't get a lot of time to explore, but it had beautiful old brick work that would make good pictures up close.

The view of the creek from the middle of the covered bridge.

Adrian, Mercy, and Sophia looking down at the rapids.

All the kids on the bridge.  I didn't get a single picture of all the kids where Kyle wasn't making a silly face.

Though this picture is a bit over exposed, I love looking through the trusses on the roof of the bridge.

I remember to take the tripod, and we managed to take a family picture! 

Thanks to the Presley's :P, our kids like to do a "silly picture".  They have often been my favorite ones because you can see everyone trying not to laugh!

We will definitely be going back to Old Mill Park and finding the waterfall and hiking around!


  1. I want to go there! Need to restart park days? :-)

    1. Yes! We need to restart park day, though it may need to wait until April!
