Lower Cascades Park
For a taste of nature close to downtown Bloomington, explore Lower Cascades Park. On the northern edge of Bloomington off Old State Road 37, Lower Cascades features a huge, fully accessible playground with swings, slides, climbing apparatus, and a toddler play area. The park has two unique limestone shelter houses and picnic areas. Cascades Creek runs though the park, along with a small waterfall, a great opportunity to explore nature. The Cascades Trail is a wide, paved trail that runs the length of the park and beyond, around 2.7 miles all together.
