This is a small little park with some beautiful scenery. While walking around we saw seals and cormorants in the water. There are places to sit and enjoy a lunch or just relax.

A neat area right in the center of town. The falls were very violent the day we were there. Not really disable unless you look for it.

Pretty little falls, picnic tables, but small and no level. The falls are what makes the stop worth while, but the small size, slope, and pesky mosquitos could warrant a pass.

Definitely hidden, we went right past it on out way into Machias and didn't notice it. The falls are definitely a site, there is an observation deck and you can walk all around for different views. Kids loved it.
