“Roadside chocolate fountain...IF it's on”
Reviewed 17 August 2013

If a town is going to call itself Wichita FALLS, it seem appropriate to have some kind of falls somewhere. Located just northwest of the downtown district on I-44 coming into the city, this man-made waterfall is sort of ho-hum by now. Pumping water up from the Big Wichita River, the water over the falls more closely resembles weak "Friday Night Lights" hot chocolate than anything else. That's IF the falls are turned on, and there is a better than average chance it will not be due to low water level in the river.

“Beautiful park with nice trails.”
Reviewed 12 August 2013

This park is really pretty and the falls are something interesting to see. Since there aren't many "tourist" attractions in Wichita Falls, if you are in the area and it is a nice day, or early morning, I highly recommend checking them out. Makes for a cute photo op too! All of the trails are nicely paved, there are plenty of benches, and there are also picnic areas.

“Make the hike, it's worth it.”
Reviewed 6 August 2013

These falls are easily seen from the freeway but getting up to them is a little tricky. There are signs once you know what to look for and the path to the falls is well maintained and really quite attractive in its own right. Once at the falls you get to experience the sound and cooling effects of the spray from the falls and you can read the dedication plaque from the Mayor of Niagara Falls. The park itself is a destination that would be very attractive even without the falls. It is a very large park area with multiuse areas and several very attractive water features. Even though you are in the city and bordering a residential neighborhood it is still possible to find quiet shady spots that are very private and calming.

“"The Falls"”
Reviewed 1 August 2013

Always fun to take friends for a photo op to "The Falls". Lovely paths and short easy access from under the freeway if time is short.

“Fake Image”
Reviewed 30 July 2013

It is neat that the city wanted to bring back the concept of a waterfall but this effort is only
a poor attempt.
