  • Once you’ve worked up an appetite, pick up a specialty sandwich at Jenny’s Place and drive to Mill Pond Park to enjoy your meal with a breathtaking view. After you’re done eating, walk along the 0.8-mile Riverwalk Trail which consists of a stone dust path, an observation deck, and a bridge along Mill Pond.
