Celebrate Lower Cascades Park

Contact Information


Lower Cascades Park was dedicated in 1924 as the city's first park. 

The park has seen many changes in the past ten decades, and Parks and Recreation invites you to celebrate the park's past, present, and future role as a recreation destination for our community!

The event highlights the completion of the Cascades Park Trail Phase 5 and Streambank Stabilization project, a significant undertaking that protects the park's environmental and historic attributes, and enhances its accessibility and recreational value.

Come see the changes, and stay for the fun! Admission to the event and participation in all activities is free.

Formal program and guest speakers, including Bloomington Mayor John Hamilton, in front of the Waterfall Shelter at 1:30 p.m. Activities include rubber duck decorating & creek floating, caricature artist, bubble station and sidewalk chalk art on the playground, history displays in the Waterfall Shelter, lawn games, and live music from 2-3:30 p.m.
