Great place for taking a walk or having a picnic. Currently closed. We are hoping it will reopen in the spring of 2019.

After a horrible snow storm in February/March, much of the county was left powerless and in disarray, trees down everywhere. The local parks and waterfall hikes have been closed for the year and are scheduled to reopen mid 2019

Have been to Child's Park many times. Decent amount of parking with bathrooms located in the parking lot. A few different trails with beautiful waterfalls. The best part is that this is a free park. Would definitely recommend!!!

A great park for a hike and a picnic. I live right around the corner. Unfortunately, because of the 2018 blizzard that we experienced, the park is closed indefinitely.

Lots and lots of waterfalls on a very easy hike. There are some roots and branches to climb over but nothing major. It's a great hike for young and old and you see a ton of waterfalls. My kids had a blast. Parking fills up...More
