  • Great location to get out and stretch the legs and take in some fresh air.. Beautiful scenery. Nice large outdoor pool as well. Highly recommend.
  • Great playground for children. Climbed Jacob's ladder, a good challenge. The falls were amazing!!! The walking trails are well kept and the beauties of nature are abundant everywhere. Great place to get away with family and friends. Lots of picnic area too!
  • Wow, what wasn't to love! It was a busy day there, the courts filled with people playing, the playground packed, the driveway/ parking lot PACKED with bikes waiting to be blessed, so I wasn't sure it would be a good day to visit as I approached. But the deer walking behind me towards the park I felt were a good sign and I was right. I very quickly discovered a treasure trove of Brooks and falls and epic landscape towering over me as I walked along its well marked,beast to navigate trails. There were stairs to climb, amazing views around every corner, and delighted explorers of all ages smilin' and lovin' life! AND THAT WATERFALL!!
  • Great place to pit-stop travelling thru with kids. You can picnic and there are public bathrooms. Awesome children's playground and the falls are a 30-minute walk there and back with a 3-year old.
  • A magnificent park for families and individuals. Ancient forests and beautiful views. Great hiking trails for exploring.
