I grew up on Glen Ave., a 5 minute walk from the park. Until the early 70's this was Glen Amusement Park with rides, games of chance, snow cones, pinball arcade and a night club that was originally called the Glen Casino, later to become the Inferno.

I've been in the area for years but never pulled off the road and checked out the falls. Really nice scenery and good place to walk

I'm biased because I got married in this park... but hey, my wedding was there, so that should say something! Beautiful waterfall, easy to access, ample parking, quick walk to Main Street eateries, nice open grassy/shady areas. Would love to live nearby.

Head up into the village from the top of the falls for lunch or dinner at one of the many great restaurants. A great family after with another Park across main... More

I venture to Glen Falls - Glen Park - often. No matter the season or the weather, it provides solace, beauty, and the wonder of our world. The water rushing over the glacial rock and then meandering through the park has an energizing and calming effect all in one. And there are lots of little nooks and crannies to explore... More

Always a treat to go and stroll through this park any time of the year, but especially in the spring when the water is really flowing.

We were visiting our son in williamsville and took a walk on Main Street to kill time. We were surprised to find this park. It was beautiful. The area is also lined in flowers. So pretty.
