Outdoor Recreation Center
Take a trip, or many, through the Rapids at Mill pointe Park. The Rapids Project, a community-based investment, removed a Low Head Sanitation Dam and replaced it with a series of nature rack weirs with fish and kayak passage lanes. This natural beauty fills the area with the sights and sounds of bubbling water only Mother Nature can provide.
