Adkins Mill Park is quietly nestled along Adkins Pond in the town of Powellville, Maryland. Upon entering the 34 acre picturesque park, visitors will find a large pavilion with picnic tables and a grill, permanent restroom facilities and a shaded fishing pier. The pier extends out into the four acre pond which supports a standard bass/bluegill fishery managed accordingly by the Department of Natural Resources.

Additionally, Adkins Mill Park has a .5 mile scenic nature trail which can be found by following the road past the fishing pier and around the bend. At the entrance to the trail, is a beautiful butterfly garden with a bench and stepping stones, created by the Powellville 4-H Clubs as a community service project in 2007. This peaceful and secluded park is a perfect place to bring the family for a picnic by the water or to spend a few hours fishing and hiking.

This park was funded in part by the Maryland Department of Natural Resources Program Open Space Grants.
