“Hidden Gem”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2012

Great area for an urban walk or biking. So much to see. Plans are to expand so I hope to return again and check it out. The pathway will connect some shops, restaurant, maybe the brewery? Wildlife like herons, deer and fish can be spotted from the bridge. You can see the history of the city in this area. Just great!

“You'll think you're looking at Niagara Falls”
5 of 5 bubbles Reviewed January 6, 2012

A wonder of nature in itself. High Falls is a destination - magnificent view from the Pont du Rennes bridge (pedestrians only.) Several activities nearby for visitors.

“Nothing really to see”
3 of 5 bubbles Reviewed December 17, 2011

Yeah the falls are pretty but there is really nothing to do. If you want to go and take pictures then yea go there. But other than the old mill and the falls there is not really much to see!
