Nice falls surrounded by parks and pathways. Kids enjoyed the park on the other side of the road, and the stand nearby had ice cream!

The falls are just a few minutes outside of the city and are a beautiful site to behild. They are small but well placed in a beautiful park and accessible via a very short walk from the car-park (which is free for a short time).

Pleasant to walk through and lots of areas to just sit and relax and many that are fun to explore and search out on your own.

A must visit! The beautiful Falls are well worth a visit. Ignore the concrete damn and concentrate on the rock formations and several Falls. So pretty. Parking very close by. Toilet facilities near car park.

This place is beautiful. The parks surrounding the area are amazing. The area exhibits what every urban park system should strive to be.

Happened to stop by this place and very happy we did. Great place for pictures of the falls and relaxing on the banks of the river. Good habitat for bird watching as well.
