The park is beautiful! The falls are so pretty. There is a path along the river to the lower falls. The mist feels great on a warm day.

Just outside Seattle, if you choose to stay at Lacey-Olympia, this will be a pleasant surprise as you dine at the Falls Terrace Restaurant. We enjoyed the sounds and sights of these falls as we dined. Lovely.
