“Nice place for an afternoon picnic”
Reviewed April 30, 2012

The falls, when running, are pleasant and not what you'd expect in Mankato. It has a huge shelter which can be used for bigger events outside. The trail around it is fine but the park itself and the falls are the real attraction. It also is attached to the Red Jacket Trail bike path system.

“A Walk in the Park”
Reviewed April 29, 2012

We are trying to walk all of Minnesota's State Parks. The hiking trail by the river was the great.

Went there as a kid. Took our kids there when they were young and have returned as an adult. A really great place for a picnic.
