Park in the lot closest to the north entrance of the park. Walk north past the building with the rest rooms. You'll see a path. It's a short easy walk (few hundred yards) to the falls. The falls are NOT a part of the Mississippi...More

Fun park right along the river. Walking trails lead you through the woods from the falls to the river. The area near the falls was landscaped beautifully generations ago and while not meticulously maintained, holds a natural charm. There's also boat access to the river...More

It's always a pleasure to find a place of peace and natural beauty on an urban waterfront. It would have been nice to have a brochure or guide to tell us more about the park.

There are no signs at the park to give you any sense of where you're going or how long the paths are. We asked lots of people who were wandering around like us and nobody was finding the hidden falls. There are unpaved paths that...More

Decided to give this place a try during a recent visit and enjoyed the park for what/where it is. Much less crowded than many local parks and great views of the river. Really liked the idea of the kayak rental where you can get them...More

Park is fairly easy to find, but once you are in the park it gets a lot tougher to find things. The falls are supposed to be the draw, yet there is no signage to direct you to the correct trailhead. I did see a...More

We never found them either but afterwards, I think I read when you are facing the River in the North parking lot, take the trail to the Right. Would love to know for sure if you decide to check it out.
