Saline - Mill Pond Park

565 West Bennett Street

Mill Pond Park, at 54 acres, is the largest of the Saline community parks. It remains an ever-popular destination in the city, hosting a multitude of events each year. The park is located on the north side of Michigan Avenue, directly across from Curtiss Park. Entrance to the park is gained from the corner of Bennett Street and Mill Road, near to Houghton Elementary School, via an extension of Bennett Street or a pedestrian path. Mill Pond Park features its own 68-spot parking lot, ample space for most functions.

Park amenities include open and wooded areas, a boat launch for motor-less boating; a pavilion, which may be rented for events, with electricity and ADA accessible restrooms; a number of soccer fields; many nature trails; a one-acre dog park; the enormous ROMP (Recreate Our Mill Pond Park) play structure; picnic areas, including on-site grills; a plethora of benches throughout the park; and a sizeable boulder, often painted by residents for announcements.

The many features of Mill Pond Park provide ample opportunities for relaxation and enjoyment. Take a stroll along the nature trails, fish the Saline River, go canoeing, have a picnic, host an event at the pavilion, go sledding and cross-country skiing, or take the dog out for a walk.

Saline Celtic Festival - very good. Reasonable admission and enough activities to keep one occupied for the better part of day. Smaller than some Celtic/Irish festivals, more personal, more navigable, less crazy. Street parking, plus some lots with shuttle buses. Anticipate walking.

Don't go after a rain. Ground is very boggy. Great place to go though.

We love to take our dogs here because they have a fenced in area that borders against the river. Our dog loves to swim, so this is perfect for her. We have not had any trouble with any of the dogs or their owners with monitoring and cleaning up after their pets. Also, no fee is needed.

Nice dog park. Took my puppy to socialize him.. sadly only one other dog there but they had fun together plus my pup got to discover water.. turns out he likes it and played in it like crazy. Great play area for the kids in another area so may opportunities here.

Unfortunately it is not fenced all the way around and lots of goose poop. Don't let your dog get in the water or the mud. They will stick up your car and definitely need a spray down with the hose when you get home
