Mill Pond Park - Lakeland Hills Auburn
Although Mill Pond Park is directly across from White River Park, they are considered separate. Mill Pond is actually a storm water detention facility for 400 acres of the Lakeland Hills development above. The park was a cooperative effort between the Public Works Department, the Auburn School District and the developer of Lakeland Hills. These groups were able to design a natural looking area with a large pond and paved trails surrounding the entire area. One pond always has water while an overflow pond fills during storms. All of it is surrounded by grass making it park like. The pond has a dock and offers fishing to children under 15. What makes Mill Pond Park really interesting is that there is a three-story-deep water retention vault hidden under the 9 tennis courts. Mill Pond Park was dedicated in 1997, named after Mill Creek, the local geological feature.
