“Like a mountain stream”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 10, 2012

Scrambling up to the spring's source requires some effort and careful placement of the feet. It's fun, though, and the water is icy cold on a hot day. The kids had fun building dams across the stream. Lovely setting, great for picnics.

“Screen Saver”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 9, 2012

I took a picture of the springs that is so beautiful I use it as a screen saver. Has an "otherworldly" feel to it.

“Early manufacturing”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed July 8, 2012

Nice storyboard on site detailing early use of water. On a hot day, this is a nice, cool spot. Great for a picnic lunch anytime. Stairs leading to top of springs are an easy activity.

“Don't miss this great city park & natural spring...”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed April 16, 2012

Dunnings Spring is a must see for any visitor to Decorah. A natural spring runs out of the hillside year round and down a steep hill making an almost waterfall =) Once the site of a grist mill, it is now a favorite city park. Great place to sit & cool off during the summer!

“Great picnic area!”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 21, 2012

Great place to take a packed lunch. Hiking trail. Nice photo opp. Ice Cave (not much of a cave but rather a small entry into a limestone bluff) just up the road.
