This park is beautiful and also pretty tiny. If you're looking for a nice long walk, this isn't going to do it for you. Bring your water shoes so you can go wading, but be careful, it's kind of slippery! If you walk all the...More

You have got to see this! What appears is just a regular park takes you down a path that leads to the most beautiful hidden waterfalls! Take a picnic, date or yoga mat. You will want to stay a while!

If you need a "Smoke Break" from your job in Dublin, but you don't smoke, then I highly recommend checking out this park! I spent many O' days "seeking inspiration" in this park while working in Dublin. The falls, the trails, the trees, the rocks,...More

There are signs saying not to swim or jump off the falls. However, many families and other people were swimming it in. Grown adults were drinking while letting their kids swim! I called the number on the sign to report this, but the lady didn't...More

I love bringing my son and eventually my other son to this great attraction! It's shallow enough to wade through with good water shoes or just barefoot. Watch for some deeper holes, so carefully watch your step. You can easily climb down some of the...More

Very relaxing atmosphere. Good way to relax and appreciate the natural impact of nature.Close to the city but in a world of its own. Good place to take kids to slow down from the fast pace of city living.

Indian run falls is in a decent sized park. Extremely easy to find, parking lot holds maybe 15-20 cars but I’ve never seen it full. There is a very short walk to the falls. Trails are on either side of the waterfall with look outs...More

We visited this while on vacation in Columbus. Like so many others have noted, this is an absolute oasis in a city of noise, hustle, and crowds. The hike is quite easy and is well shaded. The waterway is easily accessible but the falls were...More

I don't remember any. If there are they're few and far between. But there's plenty of places to sit on large rocks and enjoy the view. Hope that helps.
