Taking a big ride, and stopped by and visited, it was a shady place to chill, in the warm weather, trout farm, and nice walking pat.

Absolutely beautiful! I love the walk and views. Great place for pictures. Every season is beautiful. I grew up going here. Some things have changed but not the beauty. Worth taking a walk.

It was very windy when we went today. The park is clean and well maintained. We enjoy going there a few times a year.

Visited the park with family we were visiting. Not much to see except falls and fish hatchery. But looks like it would be a nice place to bring the family to picnic, ride bikes, or hike.

It was cool but still beautiful.the water of giant springs is so clear and the greenery so green.It always flows.you can walk out over the springs or over the shortest river (Roe) in the world. The fish hatchery had lots of large trout to see & feed

For our tourists to Great Falls be sure to stop by Giant Springs State Park. It is family friendly and home to the smallest river - the Roe River. Located just down the road from the Lewis & Clark Interpretive Center -both are a must see!

We enjoy visiting this special spot along the Missouri River. The walking paths along the water both rivers are unique. Also places to sit and rest while enjoying the fish and waterfowl.
