Mills Park is a unique example of an urban natural area. This small tract harbors acidic wooded seeps and represents the once extensive forests that occurred across the Coastal Plain. The natural area consists of a wooded block within the larger context of an 80-acre city park owned by the City of Bryant. Ferns, shrubs, and sedges grow in a series of wooded seeps that flow into an unnamed tributary of Crooked Creek.
