Gem of the City! Beautiful gardens, formal rose garden, shade garden, gazebo, fountain, overlooks, gift shop, cafe, library, art gallery, museum - all in one place - and it's all free!

So Peaceful - It lowers my BP This is a wonderful place to go and just wine down. The scenery is like a calming pill. I will have a stressful day at work and end up with High Blood Pressure readings. One trip to the Gardens and when I return home my BP is down. Works like magic every time. Sometimes i take a book and sit on a bench and read. Sometimes I go with my husband and just walk through the flowers and talk. Doesn't matter how you do it - Just do it!

Very scenic with beautiful gardens and a lake The gardens are in full bloom in the spring, but it is pleasant to walk there at any time of year. Besides the gardens, we enjoyed the Garden Center with its exhibits, as well as the paddle boat rides on Lake Glacier, at the foot of the hill.

A world class garden I am not a native to Youngstown, so when my husband first took me to the gardens 7 years ago, I was FLOORED. They are stunningly gorgeous. You can walk the grounds for hours discovering all varieties of plants. Everyone has a favorite place to sit and rest, and it is never too crowded.

A true gem of Youngstown For those who appreciate beauty, fellows riverside garden is a true find. It's free to visit as a part of Youngstown's famous Mill Creek Park and is very well maintained. The garden is drop dead gorgeous and makes me proud to be a part of Youngstown, we truly don't know just how lucky we are to have something like this!

Family Garden Fun is WONDERFUL - I highly recommend it for young kids I discovered this place today, but we didn't get to see the main gardens - we saw the American Bison exhibit, which was small but very interesting! The main thing we spent our time doing was playing in the family garden. It was SO WONDERFUL and kid-friendly. Here are more specifics that made our visit great and I hope will help you: two very friendly and helpful volunteers were on hand to help, kids could run around and explore all the beautiful flowers, big digging area filled with dirt and shovels (which the kids loved), planting a pot of black-eyed susans (which we got to take home), a fun scavenger hunt throughout the garden, big buckets of water to fill up cute watering cans and free reign to water everything, spray bottles of water to do the same thing (or spray each other), paint brushes to water paint on the sidewalk, books, coloring pages, musical instruments, picking our own little strawberries and eating them - seriously, it was magical and FREE. FREE! So, I highly recommend checking it out. Enjoy! :)

Beautiful gardens...great place to take pictures! I have been to Fellows Riverside gardens several times. When I was younger we used to bring out of town family here for a visit as well. It is a large garden that is free to the public. There are many areas that you can walk around, take pictures and have a relaxing afternoon. There is also a visitors center that houses a really nice gift shop. This garden is part of the Millcreek Metroparks but it has a separate entrance. It is a short drive from the Laterman's Mill area of the park.

Will you marry me? This place is beautiful. I actually took my wife here on our first ever date after dinner and I also proposed to her here too. This is such a beautiful place to spend a couple hours on a nice afternoon. They have some nice statues to admire. The best part of all is that it is free. What a wonderful thing for our community.

The wonderous Rose Garden of Mill Creek Metro Parks The Rose Garden of Mill Creek Park is absolutely beautiful. Many individuals go there for an afternoon of relaxation, while others take advantage of its beautiful surroundings and capture its beauty in a different way. It makes a gorgeous surrounding for wedding and high school dance pictures. I love going here with friends and with my significant other. It's free for all and provides a day of relaxing beauty.
