Visitor Comments, Memories and Reviews
September 6 Beautiful Park but unsupervised.. by Pat
We visited the park on Monday of Labor Day weekend and I must say, as beautiful as it was, we left quickly as there were intoxicated people shooting off large fireworks into the tops of the beautiful hemlock trees and we were frightened of a possible fire or worse.. No one in charge to make a report to. Also, the sign says no dogs ( unless service) and to bring out your trash.. People had several large dogs not leashed ( one growled menacingly at us) and garbage all over at the base of the beautiful waterfalls.. We left feeling dismayed.... :(
May 6 Need a Bridge by gmancato
I love taking my five year old for a beautiful hike, but really wish they would build a Bridge at the top. Then you would be able to walk in a circle. After I walked all the way back around I realized there is a path to Park Road instead of Silver Lake. I still would rather not walk with kids on the road. Also there should be a sign at least showing this is a way to cross to the other side by the parking lot. Also hope they add more railings in the Silver Lake Rd side.
May 9 Renovations by TC
Visited the Park last weekend, 5-5-13 still not open. Any info on when we can expect it to be open ? Looking forward to going back. Soon is not soon enough. :-)
July 23 reopening
does anyone know when its going to re open?
May 22 Favorite place to visit by Carla
My Aunt has lived in the area for over 30 years. We have many family visit to the park, I am hoping it will be re opened when I arrive there in June. I want my children to enjoy the park as much as we did as young children, teens and young adults. Fond memories and lots of pictures of us splashing in the streams and diving off the bottom falls.
March 5 My favorite place to escape by Teresa C
Really looking forward to the reopening of the park. Seeing the beautiful falls, walking the trails, enjoying the outdoors with my family is always a good day, Childs Park is my favorite escape.
