Area: 17.0 Acres. This park is home to the Rieth Interpretive Center, which has a bird-viewing area and other nature and environmental exhibits. It is also the location for special events such as the Maple City Arbor Day Celebration. Millrace Park lies between the Elkhart River and Millrace Canal, on Plymouth Avenue across the street from Shanklin Park. The Millrace Trail skirts the east side of the park, providing excellent bicycle and pedestrian access. The western and southern portions of the park are particularly picturesque, largely due to the impact of the Elkhart River and its floodplain.
