I grew up going there always loved it. However last summer they did not do a good job keeping park clean. I was disappointed in how such a pretty place looked so unkempt with duck and animal poop litter. Paint the bridge.

The water falls. Lights, great show, safe neighborhood. Nice, fun, family adventure! Much better then going to a movie theater. One of the best natural shoes on Jackson. Get ice cream and feed the ducks on pond, on the way.

This is jackson's premier attraction. The Citizens take it for granted but visitors are awed by it. Well worth a visit.

Sorry for taking so long to answer your question. The park is always open but the falls don't operate except between memorial day- labor day.

No, the falls are not free, but very reasonably priced. I believe a family admission is $10 for the entire family. Yes, the Cascades are open every night in the summer.
