A nice spot to watch the falls, and folks fishing. Nothing much doing here other than that. You can walk the shore line on the west side and paw thru the old stuff from the old Vergennes dump. Might find a treasure, more than likely...More

Offers view of the falls and old buildings in the distance, a nice find for a short stroll. You can reach the park from a staircase near the bridge.
