Disappointed Bandelier was closed from flooding. Made the drive up to Los Alamos just to see the drive and the town. Discovered this overlook from the street signs. It's very quiet. People came and went. The views are beautiful in every direction. It is a unique part of our American history - this part of New Mexico. Driving through the typical neighborhood that leads to the overlook park one reflects that the work done here was far from typical. Worth a few minutes if you're in the area. Highly recommend.

My husband and I stopped here to have lunch and take in the views. It is beautiful. The views are spectacular. It's quiet and not a lot of people at one time. Perfect place to take a packed lunch and just relax while getting some amazing photos. Plus it's free!

Came across these reviews by accident and glad I need. The view is truly worth the stop. As others said you'd never expect this back where it is in a city park

Small parking area with a very short walk to the overlook and all handicap accessible. Views are great. There is a waterfall in the canyon beside the overlook and you can see the water coming from the top and then see the secondary falls below that. Very nice.

A local friend took us here on the way back to Santa Fe from Bandelier National Monument. We followed the signs in White Rock to the public park, parked the car and took in an amazing view. The waterfall behind us to the left was spectacular, even though it was the end of summer. Below the overlook you can see the Rio Grande winding its way south and great views in all directions. Even on this holiday, weekend there was no one else around. Be sure to make this quick detour on your trip to this area.
