Welcome to the Park

A stunning view of Mt. Mansfield forms the background of Mills Riverside Park. This scenic vista is preceded by broad open meadow and is sharply defined by forested South Hill.

Mills Riverside Park encompasses 216 acres of open meadow and wooded hillside with a stunning view of Mt. Mansfield. Over six miles of trail provide non-motorized, recreational opportunities year round. A beautiful post and beam pavilion offers park visitors an area for relaxing away from inclement weather. The pavilion can be reserved for special occasions.

The Lauryn Ashley Stockdale Memorial Fields encompass nine acres of meadow and are available for scheduled athletic play along with general enjoyment. A large pond and the scenic Browns River further enhance the park and offer fishing opportunities. Dog owners will find several acres of “off leash” running area in the park’s eastern meadow. Beyond the rich diversity of this extraordinary land and opportunities to enjoy it, Mills Riverside Park also provides important wildlife habitat for many species.

Location

Mills Riverside Park is located directly off of Vermont Route 15 in the Town of Jericho. Driving North/East on Route 15, just before entering Underhill Flats, you will see the entrance to the park on your right.

COVID-19

Following the directives of the CDC and the State of Vermont, we have opened the park pavilion for reservations of 30 people or less. We are limiting the number to ensure social distancing can take place. Eagles Meadow Picnic Area is also available to reserve for the same number of people. We have two COVID-19 forms that need to be filled out with any reservation. See the links below.

Our playing fields can be reserved for non-contact sport play. Portelets were not ordered this summer as there is no way to sanitize them sufficiently per CDC guidelines. The Farmers’ Market, with new protocols, is held every Thursday afternoon from 3:00 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. through October. We did cancel the popular Summer Concert Series as the event draws a significant number of people. Please continue to follow any updates on this website and our Facebook page.

Enjoy the park, be mindful of others and stay safe.
