NEW ENGLAND'S FIRST WHITEWATER PARK

Connecting the Community to the River

Screen Shot 2022-10-12 at 1.58.25 PM.png

MISSION

Mill City Park at Franklin Falls is a 501(c)3 organization, who's mission is very simple...

LET THE WINNIPESAUKEE RIVER REPOWER OUR COMMUNITY.

WHAT IS MILL CITY PARK?

Good question. It is a little confusing.

Mill City Park is a 501(c)3 NONPROFIT, which has partnered with the City of Franklin to create New England's only whitewater park.

It is also a land based park, located upstream of the whitewater park. The organization is the steward of 31 acres of previously unwanted riverfront land, which is now open to the public and protected in perpetuity, as a free place to recreate outside.
