The Millers Pond TRACK Trail is a 0.53 mile loop trail that takes visitors around Millers Pond. As you travel around the trail, visitors will be able to view the pond and the various wildlife found living there, from water turtles and birds to various species of frogs and fish. The pond has several docks and fishing platforms, allowing park patrons to get an up close view plants and animals that call the pond home. Visitors will also get to walk through the forest, using the brochure-led adventures to learn about the trees and other natural resources found in the park.
In addition to the trail, the park also has a playground and picnic area that visitors to the park can use to further enjoy the environment.

Kids in Parks has partnered with The College of Health and Human Services at the University of North Carolina Wilmington (CHHS UNCW) through their 5-county collaborative group called the Southeastern North Carolina Regional Health Collaborative (SENCRHC). The SENCRHC’s mission is to improve individual and population/community health in Southeastern North Carolina through regional programs and interventions that promote residents in Southeastern NC to be actively engaged in healthy lifestyles.
The Center for Healthy Communities (CHC) is providing critical backbone functions that provide the guidance, coordination and communication required to maintain an effective collaborative. These functions include facilitation of the regional public health diabetes network and implementation of a region-wide health intervention through the Kids in Parks program.
