It's a pretty fountain. Worth walking up, and then down, the stairs to see if it you're walking by but I don't think it's worth a trip.

This attraction had no water flowing when we were there and it looked like it had been a while since any had been flowing like in some of the pictures we've seen. It would have been very impressive. This seems to be a complex water...More

Seriously? This is listed as an attraction? It's more like an amusing joke. It is not a waterfall, unless you consider canal water over a small concrete dam to be exciting. Having made fun of it, it is a nice place to pause if you're...More

Not much here really. I guess it's a hydroelectric plant. It has some waterfalls. Kinda nice to look at. My kids thought it kinda smelled weird. We stayed for about 10 minutes and we were done.

the falls are a nice quick stop say you're taking a bike ride, jog or walk along the canal, but as a must see destination? if it's part of a whole experience ok

I drop by the falls every now and then. It is a smaller peaceful place with the sound of waterfalls rushing by. Basically, it is an "artistically designed" hydroelectric plant. Want a place to sit and gather your thoughts?

My parents, young daughter and I stopped here after visiting David and Glady's Wrights house and were disappointed in our visit. The falls were completely dry! Despite the recent rain there was no sign of a waterfall.
