Parks, Gardens and Recreation Grounds. Brief Description:
Through the grounds of the well known Falls Hotel runs a most beautiful
walking ground. The cascades, then the slowly moving Inagh river -
where boating is so popular - the woods, the green fields and the
Atlantic ocean in the distance present a most entrancing scene. This
walk is open to the public.
