Falls Park reviews
This was a great place to walk and observe the people. The tower is a must for great photos. This was a very good trip to relax and look around

This honestly feels like a state park within a city, rather than a city park. Gorgeous falls. I feel jealous that locals have such an amazing place to spend time, right next to their downtown.

The park was really beautiful and well kept. We enjoyed climbing and exploring the various routes along the falls and watching the water. Our visit was in the fall, so the water was much lower than the other photos we saw, which I assume were in the spring. It was still very worth the trip. Plenty of nice folks were visiting at the same time. Bathroom is clean and in good working order.
We love falls park but with all the drought this year, the river is significantly lower than it normally is. Coming in the winter is a treat because a good portion of the river freezes over but the falls are still moving. They also have the Christmas lights out for the Winter Wonderland theme. The pedestrian bridge over the river is a bit small so you can't stop long to take pictures. Great experience though and I highly recommend.
