  • Lovely park. This park maintains a 1950s vibe. It is a lovely spot for a picnic. It has a number of shelters that can be rented for group functions. Best of all, the road through the.park traverses the escarpment, making for great cycling up and down.
  • Beautiful falls with good fishing in the lake. Great place for a picnic!
  • Nice park. However waterfall dries out in summer so keep that in mind. Perfect time is spring and rainy season when waterfall starts flowing. I walked over dried out creek and took pics of then dried out waterfall.
  • Absolutely incredible Park to walk or run through. The falls use to be accessible by a path that authorities have recently closed... Should've posted an "at your own risk" sign instead.
  • It is so beautiful and maintained so well.
