Great park, only downside is they don't allow dogs on leashes! I most likely won't go back because I walk with my dog and can't bring her. So unfortunate because it's such a beautiful walk.

Very nice trail w/ falls, creek along the trail & you hear sound of gushing waters, went on a hot & humid day & saw lots of children dipping in d creek having fun overall it's a good experience w/ family the only thing is it's crowded esp if it's good weather .

Great place to spend an afternoon. The water has fish that come right up to the foot boardwalks, and there is plenty of different vegetation throughout the park. No dogs are allowed which is a shame BUT they want to cause as little change in the natural ecosystem as possible, so please do respect that rule.

I would also recommend bringing a lot of bug spray and shoes that you don't care much about aesthetically - the trails can be a bit mucky depending on the time of year.

Overall, it's a lovely place and is located right in Richfield so if you're local, you don't have a long ways to go.
