  • What you see in the photo is pretty much what you get I'm not saying it's not pretty but once you've seen it there's not really much more to it occasionally on special holidays they have music and fir...  more »

  • It was nice. The show was great. But the fountain itself is a bit rundown. The water sprays out onto the stairs so when you walk around it you get soaked. I'd advise just going for the show at 10 at night and not getting there early to walk around and take in the scenery. It's a shame really because it could be so much better and a really great place to hang out and walk around.
  • It's a huge hill in the middle of some of Jackson's best neighborhoods. You wouldn't think of it being that cool but it kinda is. The falls are neat too.
  • It's getting a much needed makeover with the addition of a splash pad for kids! Ice cream is available at a price nearby. Such a nice place to visit!
  • The biggest attraction in Jackson. Price has gotten a bit steep but everyone should do it once. A must see for people with children. If kids are capable of going up and down stairs unattended it is a nice way to relax and let kids exhaust themselves. If you are in need of some exercise, climbing the stairs next to the beautiful water show is an excellent workout. Try to go on a night when there are fireworks for the added value. Also a cute gift shop selling souvenirs, postcard etc.
  • Great place for walking or running, there are lots of different paths to take. Dogs are welcome.
