We found this by luck, trying to get away from Main Street traffic to find a quiet place to eat our lunch. It was busy, but not crowded, just off Main Street. We are visiting from out of town, and this is not just another...More

The park name is Glen Park, located on Main St. in Williamsville, NY, and includes Glen Falls (not to be confused with Glens Falls, NY - between Saratoga and Lake George). Nice but steep walking trail from Main St. It's a small park, but beautiful....More

This waterfall is situated nearby Buffalo, so this activity should be removed from this location. There is no waterfall in Saratoga Springs.

Windy trails, long stretches, shady grassy spots for picnicking and gorgeous waterfall make for a scenic stroll. Some spots have low barrier walls that could be a hazard to young rambunctious kids near waterfall area.

Great place for a relaxing walk. Grab an ice cream at Sweet Jenny's in the restored 1811 water mill & walk down to the falls below. For the nostalgic, walk thru the park paths which once housed the Glen amusement park, as well as the...More

When in the Buffalo area we usually stay at a hotel just down the street and usually take a little after dinner walk to see the falls. They are quite nice to look at if you're in the area. They're not something I'd go out...More

Glen Falls is a really beautiful venue. I have used it for photo shoots for years and often see bridal parties there getting wedding photos taken. Very peaceful and serene. Usually there is ample parking across the street, but if really busy, it can fill...More

It takes just a few minutes to walk in this small park, where you can enjoy flowers, birds and the sound of the waterfall. There is a parking place just near the entrance so it is very convenient!

I have not seen a wedding happening here, but there are lot of pre-wedding and post wedding photo shoots. I would say space is not enough for a gathering unless it's a very small event and a non rush day. This place can... More
