This park is right in front of the American Waterfalls. It’s a lovely park, well taken care of. In fact while I was there, they were cutting the grass and other personnel took care of the plants and flowers. They even have a lovely fountain...More

there are some flowers planted, and the arrangement is quite good, also a small fountain there. But as it's already turn dark when we go there, if in the sunny day time, it will be even more beautiful.

Awesome spot for group or wedding photos. It's not crowded and you can see the falls. Lots of benches and shade. The round platform in the middle is bar height. The trees along the edges are good for framing couples shots with the falls in...More

Nestled against the River Parkway at the bottom of Clifton Hill and The Oakes Hotel is a little slice of tranquility. Often called the Secret Garden, it is a complete opposite to the noise and neon that surrounds it. Beautifully landscaped and superbly maintained, this...More
