All the staff we met were friendly and we enjoyed riding the train. You can get off at various stops which is nice. The petting zoo was nice and they have other animals in cages. The habitats were nice! Our favorite was the lazy Llama! We hiked down to the bottom of the falls and the trail is rocky but... More

When my sister and I first got into the park, we had decided that we would walk to some of the destinations. But we are not from the area, and thus- had no clue where we were going. To complicate matters more, some of the areas were marked off. Resigned, we decided to ride the little train that traveled the... More

We took our grandchildren to Noccalula today and they enjoyed the train ride and the petting zoo. By the time the mini golf opened (for repairs) about 1-1/2 to 2 hours later than scheduled, it was too hot to enjoy it very much and there were so many holes that had water traps where the balls would go that it...

We have been there 3 times with our camper and we love it! The sites are spacious with picnic benches, fire pits, grills and some have swing chairs! There are several nature trails including difficult and easy trails among beautiful surroundings. there is also a long trail down by the river. It is a very short walk to the falls,... More

We went here today. The falls were beautiful. The home wasn't as bad as people made it out to be. I think the animals need better care. The sheep and alpaca both needed shearing. The water in the pens didn't look clean. What we saw for food was onions and pineapple tops.

Visiting Noccalula Falls has always been a treasured past time for many families in Gadsden. I think we take for granted this beautiful landmark tucked away in our little city. From the train ride to putt-putt golf, it is a great place for families. The scenic hiking and walking paths are great for anyone who loves the outdoors.

This is a city maintained park with the scenery as the focal point. It gas a good size natural water fall. The area is historic with some added attractions such as gardens and the Veterans Memorial Area. A small train is a nice way to see the entire area. There is a children's area with some kiddie rides. And, at... More

Noccalula Falls was a beautiful place to stop, and I'd highly recommend it. We paid $6 per adult to enter, and it was well worth it because you can take your time around the park. There is a small train that will bring you around. This is good to get your bearings, but you really should get off at the... More
