Very picturesque & there is a park located close by & is located in town. It can be seen year round. It’s especially beautiful on the evening of July 1 when the town lights the falls up & then the fireworks are displayed close by.

went in the middle of October, colours were nice, and there is actually free parking. Took a little walk around. Spend up to 30 minutes.

The falls are central to the history and development of the town. The area around the falls is great for walking, and quiet time!

A must see in Bracebridge. Well signposted location at the end of the main street. Viewing platform really well designed to get some great photos of the falls.

This is hardly recognizable as a falls, in that it is created by a man made dam used for hydro electricity. Easy paved parking area, with a bench, but not the type of falls one would expect to find on the Canadian Shield.

Great place to check out while in Bracebridge. 5 min walk from downtown. Easy walking path and bridge to both sides. * note: steep hill on one side and stairs on the other if you want to view from the bottom

A lovely walk by the side of the river. Very peaceful, though not all on the flat. A lovely damn, creating a fall. Very few people.
