Jackson County Parks Descriptions - Sparks Foundation County Park


Sparks Foundation County ParkThe best known attraction of this 457 acre park is the Cascades, a man-made, illuminated waterfall with musical accompaniment enjoyed by all since 1932. Some prefer to watch the dancing lights and listen to the beautiful music from comfortable seats, while the more energetic climb to the top of the 500 foot hill alongside the six giant fountains while dodging the spraying water.


The Cascades are illuminated every night from Memorial Day through Labor Day,
8:00 p.m. - 11:00 p.m. with an admission charge. Children 10 years and under are free with paid adult. Call for special group rates. Please check out our Special Events Calendar.
