On our way to dinner stopped at park. View of river limited because of over growth of trees. Could be nice place for picnic. Park needs some clean up work

The park was under construction so it may be different when finished. There is not much to do there but it is interesting to see the whirlpool. The views are better on the Canadian side.

Pros: Nice closer look to see the turn, cable car from Canada, closer look to see Canada shore, Rest rooms, more park benches, De Veaux state park near by, Wheel chair accessible, no crowd. Cons: thinking ...... Never to miss and I recommend for all ages.

It is so great to see the whirlpool forming and then forming it in the reverse while you observe it from the Gandola the majesty of the experience leaves you in a daze.

Gotta see it! Unbelievable view! We went twice just to take it in. The river's color along with the two whirlpools was breathtaking.

Absolutely amazing. You will be transformed to watching the whirlpool. It is breathtaking to watch. And...the history of the making of the whirlpool is a very interesting story.
