  • Beautiful. Plenty of trees, shade, two playgrounds, shelter, restrooms, water fountain, lots of shaded picnic tables, a pond with dock to watch sucks, geese, fish, and turtle, a walking trail with waterfalls. Very relaxing. The trails have been a little overgrown with bushes hanging over the path, but otherwise a nice place to walk and let the kids play, or just sit and enjoy nature.
  • Waterfall park is such a beautiful little park. With a nice little trail and a small pond in the center, you get to enjoy a little bit of nature in the middle of the city. The waterfall fall itself, while tiny, is still a beautiful sight. Especially on a nice on day, it's wonderful to stand near it and just feel the water hit your face. There is a small play ground area for children, and some picnic tables so you can enjoy some family time as well. If you are a fan of biking, the trail is very bike friendly. The park as a whole is kept very clean, and In the many times I've visited I don't think I've seen a single piece of trash.
