“Gotta Love Cascades”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 8, 2013

A concrete cascade of water with colored light show, Cascades was built in 1932by William Sparks. I think it is less than $5 to enter. You can walk around the cascades from top to bottom and there is stadium seating for special events or to just sit and enjoy the cheesey music and light show. A MUST see in Jackson! Also includes a small museum and snack bar. Cascades is surrounded by free park and hosts three fireworks show every year where the surrounding park FILLS with spectators!

“An Old Standby”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed January 28, 2013

It doesn't look as majestic as it did when I was a kid, some 40 years ago. It's fun to bring the kids, but nothing too exciting.

“Nice place to see fireworks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 2, 2013

The fireworks are awesome to see over the falls in July or Memorial Day. On weekends in the summer they also do live music with a light show. Its got a couple of pavillions for picnics, hiking trails, and childrens park nearby inside the Cascade Park.

“Something to see once in your lifetime.”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 2, 2012

It's no wonder of the world, but it is really pretty and a great place to hear music, have a private party, enjoy the nice MI summer weather. Jackson is a great place to live, and the Cascades and Ella Sharp Park greatly contribute to the lifestyle we enjoy.
