  • It's nice. Over manicured. Why plant Loropetalum and then scalp it when it's in full bloom? Who are the barbed wire fenced parking spaces for? The few trees that remain are a treasure. Goose feeding stations would be nice so they aren't dependant on grass alone. I like the historic plaques and the war memorial.
  • My children and I really love this park. It is so beautiful with lots of open green grass, gorgeous landscaping, and long paths for walking. It's an excellent venue for events because it has a really nice amphitheater with a lot of seating, including a lot of open grass where people can sit if they want to. The playground area is unique and aesthetically pleasing, though not very practical and fun for kids, at least not mine. The absolute highlight of the park is the splash pad. It is so AWESOME to have around in the summertime. It is free, refreshing, and tons of fun for the kids. We also love the open paved areas around the splash pad and behind the amphitheater. My five year old likes to ride his bike there. The facilities are pretty clean everytime we go and the park in general is very well maintained. It's also a great place for rock hunting, if you're into that. The only downsides to the park are that parking can be a bit of a pain, and there's not a lot of shade in most of the park. On a really hot summer day it's not the best place to go for a walk.
  • A great walking trail and water features right down town. Lots of great concerts and free events. A small kids play area and not much space to play any sports besides tossing a disc or ball.
  • Cascades Park is my favorite place to go in the city. It's beautiful and vibrant. There are plenty of spots to sit and read or have a picnic. It's also an excellent place to run, bike, or walk. There's plenty of parking during non-business hours. It's a really great park.
  • Very nice place for a pleasant walk. We were pleasantly surprised to discover the base line and meridian monument for the state of Florida Public Survey System in a nice mosaic showing all the counties in Florida. Nice waterfall and a creek, and a Korean War memorial. An asset to Tallahassee for visitors and residents alike.
