There is an active osprey nest. There is plenty of shore to cast a line. It is small, and with the nearby falls, the creek and the... More

Falls Park is a great place to photograph water falls, kayak, fish from, sit and relax. The park can be entered from the north or south end of the bridge over the Otter Creek.

This park is very well maintained and the park is beautiful. I wish I had more time to explore it. The bike trails and hiking trails appear to be well marked.

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! The falls are beautiful and the entire setting on Otter Creek is so peaceful. We enjoyed looking at the large pleasure boats that were... More

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.
