Mooresville Mill Village

Mooresville and the Lake Norman area are home to a plethora of recreational outlets. The venues listed on this page have been selected because of their ease of access (i.e. walking distance) from the Mill Village or for their exceptional interest.


Mooresville couldn't be luckier--the Mill owners left the town the gift of a public golf course. The beautful course abuts the Mill Village. See the Mooresville Golf Course web pages for more info.

The Mill Village enjoys two pocket parks within its boundaries: Nesbit Park (Behind the mill, on the corner of Summer Street and Nesbit) and South Academy Park (across from Southside Baptist Park).
