We had read about this park on Trip Advisor and we were glad we did. We were also happy that we found it, off the busy Main St. of Vergennes. It is well worth the stop!

We visit the Falls Park almost every day in Vergennes. It is a peaceful spot and sometimes there are boats that can be toured and/or sailed.

This historic site is worth stopping for the photos and history lesson. Look for it. It is tiny but powerful.

Contrary to another reviewer there was no water this visit. A fallen tree was being removed and debris cleaned up. Obviously the area is well maintained and a lovely spot for a picnic. There is also a nice trail from the Falls with some geocaches.

A pretty little park below the falls. Great spot for fishing Otter Creek or checking for birds in the area. Also, very nice spot to stop for a bit on a warm summer day. Very pretty in the winter w/ice on the falls!!!

Vergennes has so much to see, and this is a great spot to enjoy the Falls, and see Otter Creek, which is a deep water river that connects to Lake Champlain.

The Falls at Vergennes are a beautiful mix of urban and riverine scenery. The park, at the foot of the falls, give a wonderful view of the falls, particularly at sunset in the warm months. Also co-located with the 1812 shipyard of Commodore MacDonough.

The water was gushing over the falls and dam, and the parking area was flooded. Hopefully they will be able to clean it up when the water recedes. It looked like a pretty place.
