Took forever to actually find how to get to it without hiking a mile from Lucy Park, then when we do discover it we find debris floating in the pool and a tattered US flag flying on the pole. The city can do better.

Passing through and did a quick detour to stop here. Didn’t get to hike as I hurt my leg but looked pristine. I stopped to get out of cars near a pond with beautiful geese, ducks, swans etc

Can be viewed from Hwy when heading south coming out of OK, a nice walking area near the river with nice paths and very family friendly park. A nice touch for this city, small man made fall but worth the break to check out.

I drove past these falls several days before I noticed them right along the highway outside base! Cute but I wouldn't stop since it looks like a pretty small place and I'm not sure if it is in a safe area.

Beautiful easy trails all around the park and up to the falls. Lots of shade, flower beds and benches along the winding river walk. Mostly peaceful with singing birds but as you get close to the falls you also hear a lot of highway noise.

The falls were a lot smaller than I expected but it was a nice walk through the park and we enjoyed the journey. The falls were a great place to take pictures. A nice place to visit.

Great little waterfall just off Interstate 44/Hwy 277/281/287 as it crosses over the Wichita River. You can exit and do a little turnaround and see it up close. The parking lot at the top of the hill was closed when we were there. However, my...More

Thought the falls were deep in Lucy Park... it is actually on the bike trail on the way out of the park. There are steps so that you can walk up to near the top of the falls. Go just a mile or so farther...More

The "falls" were "not working ("as usual," according to the locals, and the woman at the Texas Travel Information Center). They may have been more impressive if they were: the originals, which rebuilt in 1986 to replace the one lost in a flood in the...More

The Falls are pretty but small. They make a great background for a photo shoot. The walkway up to the falls is pretty.

We drove by on a Sunday and access/parking at the top of the falls was closed. However, we drove around again and my husband dropped me off and I was able to get several great photos of the falls. We did notice a small... More
