This is a lovely place to take an easy-paced walk. The trails are mostly flat and shady, and part of the way goes right along the water. No admission fee and free parking.

We took the trail through the park on a family visit. It was beautiful. The path was good, though we took the stairs down to see the fish hatchery. There are an a aging number of trails through the park.

Yes, there are many places in the park to read a book. If you want to be near the falls, I would of course bring a folding chair or spread a blanket.

you can do in as little as 10 minutes. the falls are right off the parking lot. if you follow the trails you can walk for as long as you'd like.
