Milltown Community Council has been active in developing the parish, including through the building of a Community Centre, which offers varied activities.
Milltown railway station opened on 30 April 1894 and closed on 17 June 1963. Milltown was one of the stations on the Western Railway Corridor. It was located between Tuam and Claremorris. As of 2009, there were plans to re-open the line and station with funding from the Irish government's "Transport 21" programme.
There is also a 550-metre walk along the River Clare, for which the Local Development Association has won a number of awards. It also has a 4.5 km Slí na Sláinte rural walk, for which it won first place in County Galway in the National Tidy Town Awards for 8 years from 1996-2003. A telescope which belonged to John Birmingham is on display at the Milltown community museum.
