Beautiful! A storm was coming when I had the opportunity to visit -- but it was landscaped and the falls are beautiful -- well worth the visit!

Extremely enjoyed this park. Was able to take in a free theater performance, and a beautiful evening stroll. I thought this park along made the City join my top list of places to visit. The city by itself is nice but the park added so much to the experience of my stay that I wouldn't pass it up if you have the chance. Just take a walk.
