Celebrate Lower Cascades Park on Sunday, Sept. 18

BLOOMINGTON – Come out and celebrate Lower Cascades Park on Sunday, Sept. 18 from 1 p.m. until 4 p.m. at the Waterfall Shelter at Lower Cascades.

Lower Cascades Park located at 2851 Old State Road 37 in Bloomington, was dedicated in 1924 as the city’s first park.

The park has seen many changes in the past ten decades, and Bloomington Parks and Recreation invites you to celebrate the park’s past, present, and future role as a recreation destination.

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 historical attributes, and enhances its accessibility and recreational value.

Come see the changes, and stay for the fun.

Formal program and guest speakers, including Bloomington Mayor John Hamilton, in front of the Waterfall Shelter at 1:30 p.m.

Other activities include a rubber duck decorating and creek floating event, a caricature artist bubble station and sidewalk chalk art on the playground, history displays in the Waterfall Shelter, and lawn games. Live music will be performed from 2 p.m. until 3:30 p.m.
