Mill Creek Park

Filed under: Photography — Singari Vijay @ 10:11 pm

We moved to Boardman, Ohio a couple of years ago on my new job. When we moved here we didn’t know much about this place, we were living in Pittsburgh, PA at that time. In Boardman, we rented a condominium, which was very close to my work. The new place was great for us. It was a two bedrooms and two-storied house with a basement. The best thing was, it was very close to work: just about a mile!

To make the things better, a friend at work told me about Mill Creek MetroParks. He had told me lot of good things about the park, but I did not pay much attention at that time. After a month or so, on a Sunday, my wife and I went to the park. What a pleasant surprise we had! My friend was absolutely right. That was really a beautiful place. The park had everything there: creeks, rivers, flowers, birds, fish and more.

Since my first visit to the park, I have been taking pictures of the things I liked there. I would like to show you some of those pictures now.

  2. good shots Vijay!
    what i felt is bit more into macro level would be great for the red berries and good exposure for others…
    yet a rookie to critique a professional though 🙂

  7. I grew up in Boardman and found your site a treat. How unusual to find my old town through a cooking blog.
    I love your photos and recipes.

  10. I used to live in Youngstown and often visited Mill Creek Park. I now live in North Carolina and I am hard pressed to find a place as beautiful as Mill Creek Park. The only thing that is as good is the Smokey Mountains and that is a few hours from here. Thanks for bringing back such wonderful memories!
