The Mill and property were donated by Eston and Lydia Rawson who restored the mill and planted the gardens to create this favorite area on Nottawa Creek. Spend the day exploring everything this park has to offer: the scenic dam and waterfalls, the historic mill, and over 7 acres of bridges, paths and gardens over 2 islands. There is ample space for picnics, fishing, and relaxation. Because of its unique beauty, Rawson's is a favorite spot for photographers and nature lovers.

The St. Joseph County Parks & Recreation Department continually strives to provide local communities access to well-maintained, safe and eco-friendly parks as well as fun recreation opportunities. While entry to our parks is currently free for county residents, we are asking for park supporters to consider making a donation of just $20 for continued development and maintenance. Park Patrons will make a significant difference in the options and features we are able to offer visitors and residents of St. Joseph County. Please consider donating today for better parks tomorrow! For a limited time, donate $20 and receive a free tshirt and water bottle.
