Relaxing park with great views

Great way to spend a morning, afternoon or evening. The Falls, the stone structures, the tower and the walkways all add to the time spent there. A nice relaxing areas.

The Falls are beautiful. The view from the park plus the view from the tower are great. It is peaceful and quiet. It is a large area to walk around with several interesting sights.

We drove out to the park, walked around and took a lot of photos. It is a very pretty place and enjoyed the beauty of the water falls.

Falls Park was easy to get to from the Interstate. It is a beautiful stop not to be missed. The pathways throughout the park and the grounds are lovely. We went up inside the tower for an overview of the area which was very nice. We walked across the bridge to have lunch in the Overlook Cafe.

The falls are special. Powerful and beautiful. The city keeps it immaculate and during Christmas, the lights are awesome. It would be better if there was more commerce around. The grounds and view are well worth your time.

If you are anywhere nearby ... I encourage you to view Falls Park. Having been to Niagara Falls and several epic falls in Oregon ... it is a low-key place ... but very nice nonetheless. Take in the falls and then have a nice lunch "downtown" ... many comfortable places.
