Beautiful park with trails along the creek complete with waterfalls. Historic plaques along the way with interesting facts about the area. Serene lush green surroundings right behind downtown Bedford. Don't be afraid to walk through the tunnel. Be careful with small children who might want to get too close to the edge. Bring your camera.

I would definitely recommended this place if in the area. It's a short walk less than a half mile. They signs here add to the history and what you are looking at the falls themselves are huge here and you can fell the mist of the water. There's a little tunnel to walk through but it is dark and shrinks... More

This was SO worth our time and side trip to visit. Living history abounds and the Great Falls are easily accessible and well worth the hike into the park. Take time to read about the community's history and to seek out the remains of times gone by. Free parking and access is also a plus.

Having grown up next to this park, fished its streams and hunted mushrooms and may apples with my dad, and returned often, I can assure you this is a place to walk and relax in non-threatening natural surroundings. Say hello for me.

The Viaduct Park is a hidden gem! A paved path leads you along ruins of an old mill and viaduct but the real gem is the creek and waterfall! There's a nice parking lot and a porta-potty. Head to downtown Bedford if you're hungry. Bedford Falls Cafe is perfect for a cup of coffee and light lunch. Sirna's has excellent... More

The trail and waterfall here are nice. Generally clean and the people friendly, no charge to park there or enter the park, and pet owners can get clean-up bags for their dogs. There are no restroom facilities at the park; only a porta-potty. I've been there early in the morning (among other times) and more than once saw early morning... More

My husband and I enjoy going here to just relax. We have been here many times just to take in the views, a little picnic, and even just to talk. Good history and cool things to see as well. There are benches and you can get very close to the water. A nice little gem in the city of Bedford.

This is a great little park. The waterfall is lovely. Most of the path is paved, though it might be a bit too steep for wheelchairs. There's signs around explaining the history of the place which is nice.

The park does not look very nice from the road and briefly I thought we had found ourselves on the wrong side of the tracks. Once you get into the park though it is well worth it. The falls are very impressive. Of all the waterfalls in the area this had the most volume going over at one time. You... More

Parking right there and you can go out onto the old viaduct and read about some of the history of it. Then there's a nice little paved path that goes down into the tree's down to the creek. There's also a couple of dirt path's off the main path.
