Beautiful Milham Park is a historic 49-acre park that has the Portage Creek running through it, crossed by three different bridges, and hundreds of mature shade trees. It is a popular destination for family picnics and other gatherings.

There is a large picnic shelter with electricity and a seating capacity of 144 people, which is something Dokidokon has rented for this event! The park also has four different playgrounds which are located throughout the park offering different levels of play for children.
