Park Spotlight

County Park Spotlight - Sparks Foundation County Park

The 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 6 giant fountains while dodging the spraying water.

The Cascades are illuminated every night from Memorial Day through Labor Day, 8 p.m. to 11 p.m. with an admission charge. Children 10 years and under are free with paid adult. Call for special group rates. For additional information, please view the Cascades Parks Special Events.

The park also includes an outdoor basketball court, playground and picnic areas, and 2 shelters (by reservation only). The Urban Fishery opened this year and features a fishing pier and interactive signs. The Cascades Short Course and driving range, and the Cascades 18-hole Championship Golf Course are located at the park as well. The Cascade Falls Park is also the home of many special events such as the Midwest's Largest Civil War Muster, and spectacular fireworks show every year. And don't forget to stop by the Cascades Ice Cream Co Featuring "Frozen Dome Malts," open March through September.
