Photograph Brown Park Waterfall

Brown Park Waterfall

There are few waterfalls in Kansas. This waterfall is peaceful and easily accessible.

This waterfall is frequently flowing. It was created by a defunct mill dam on Turkey Creek. It is located in Brown Memorial Park just outside of Abilene, Kansas.

Take Highway 15 south from Abilene, over the Smoky Hill River. Turn east (left) on 2000 Avenue, than south a few hundred yards on Hawk Road to 1935 Lane. Turn east (left) again onto 1935 Lane, which crosses Turkey Creek just above the falls.

Very Average Falls

You can tell it's the place Boy Scouts go when they're angsty teens with a can of spray paint. For that I find it endearing in the nostalgic, country rural girl at heart. But maybe not worth turning off the interstate for. Once you pass the bridge in the park it's the circle lot on the left hand side.

Watch the Sunrise at Tuttle Creek Lake

This cove at Tuttle Creek Lake is not in an official park, but it is open to the public. It is a place I have come to again and again.
