The Falls in Lucy Park
The city's original falls (the namesake of the city) washed away in a flood in the 1800s. In 1987 a new falls was constructed upstream. The present 54-foot man-made waterfall is a multi-level cascade on the south bank of the Wichita River. Makes for a great stroll and picture taking. When you get done there, just walk down the path to Lucy Park.
