Mill Creek is known for generous open spaces and well kept neighborhoods featuring lovely residences along tree lined streets. This is primarily a residential community with strong neighborhood covenants where citizens are encouraged to become actively involved in the growth of the city.
Shopping areas are conveniently located and include many family restaurants. The Town Center, a traditional Main Street design, mixes office, retail, entertainment, parking, and public plazas that connect with the surrounding commercial and neighborhood areas.
Mill Creek’s well defined neighborhoods offer a diversity of housing options for almost every lifestyle such as single family homes, condominiums, apartments and a cottage neighborhood located just north of the Town Center.
The city maintains a network of pedestrian and bicycle trails, and supports many parks and recreation programs. The Sports Park features a lighted, artificial turf ball field and a skate park. Nature preserves and parks are popular places for outdoor fun. Community get togethers include a summer concerts in the Park series, a semi annual Citywide Garage Sale and the Mill Creek Festival.
