Milton’s Mill Pond is one of our favourite local sites. The infamous gazebo, built in 2001, is found all over the Internet as a popular destination for local photographers.
The Town of Milton originally took ownership of the Pond when it was donated by Robin Hood Flour Mills for the future development of parkland. The first meeting among local Milton residents to discuss the development plans for Mill Pond took place in February of 1964 with an estimated cost to develop of $20,000.
The original plans for Miltons Mill Pond included:
- 60 by 150-foot island
- Waterfall to keep the water fresh
- Children’s animal farm
- Boat Rentals
- Flower gardens
