Immediately adjacent to downtown, Henderson Falls Park includes 25 acres of scenic beauty full of play areas, an amphitheater, tennis courts, picnic pavilions, a beautiful waterfall, covered bridge, and nature trail.

This 20-foot free-fall and cascade (the 10-foot drop is pictured) is maintained by the city of Toccoa. It's a pleasant place to visit and picnic if you are in town to see the main attraction of Toccoa Falls or heading north to Tallulah Falls or Clayton. Other amenities include nature trails, open picnic areas in addition to the pavilions, and free parking.
