“Nice views, lots of areas to explore.”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed March 29, 2013

Thatcher park is a nice place to visit either by yourself, or with your family. The views can be breath taking and there is ample areas for you to have a picnic or just to hike and explore. It is worth the time to stop at least once in your life.

This is the first place I bring my international visitors and they are impressed. The hike under the waterfall is a hit with my grandchildren.

“My favorite outdoor area”
4 of 5 bubbles Reviewed February 15, 2013

Its a great escape from the city, yet so close. There are so many trails, escarpments, etc. I love finding new springs, and waterfalls. It's a new experience every time!
