The park is situated opposite the Captain Cook Schoolroom Museum and is
approached by the footbridge over the River Leven. It provides a quiet
sanctuary with the trees providing protection from wind and blocking out
the sounds of traffic. The water cascades over the Waterfall and it
can be a spectacular sight after heavy rainfall in the hills. Waterfall
Park also features an old (decommissioned) Victorian Urinal. The
footpath continues beyond the park providing access to the Riverside
Walk where a kick-about area (including goal posts) has been developed.
The footpath continues to Little Ayton, Easby and beyond.
