A Parks and Recreation Guide to locations for outdoor adventures in WNY.

Akron Falls
A county owned park in the Village of Akron, Erie County.


Description:

There are two waterfalls to view in this park, Upper and Lower.  Murder Creek runs thru this Erie County Park and over the Onondaga Escarpment.  A beautiful 90 foot tall waterfall can best be viewed during the spring time.  There are several trails and paths here for hikers or biking.

An entrance is located from Route 93, Buell Street, to Parkview Drive.  Take the right fork going east, the main Park Road, to view the waterfalls region.  Take the left fork to view the Lake with Dam, underpass and a historic old mill site.  Traveling north you will eventually hit Main Street in the village.
