Just a short walk down from our hotel and at the northern end of town, with an antique water wheel, beautiful bridge and a terrific boardwalk along the river

We saw these falls in the centre of Bracebridge on a recent visit. The natural part of the falls looks scenic and all the dams and water controls are still in place from the time of water power in the 1800's. There's a modernized electric...More

Very picturesque & there is a park located close by & is located in town. It can be seen year round. It’s especially beautiful on the evening of July 1 when the town lights the falls up & then the fireworks are displayed close by.

The falls are central to the history and development of the town. The area around the falls is great for walking, and quiet time!

A must see in Bracebridge. Well signposted location at the end of the main street. Viewing platform really well designed to get some great photos of the falls.

This is hardly recognizable as a falls, in that it is created by a man made dam used for hydro electricity. Easy paved parking area, with a bench, but not the type of falls one would expect to find on the Canadian Shield.

Great place to check out while in Bracebridge. 5 min walk from downtown. Easy walking path and bridge to both sides. * note: steep hill on one side and stairs on the other if you want to view from the bottom
