Wichita Falls, Texas: Artificial Wichita Falls

A 19th century flood washed away the original falls; this sturdier version, with several drops adding up to 54 ft., was created in 1989. Visible from southbound I-44 or park walking trail.

Artificial Wichita Falls

It was about an eight-minute walk to the Falls from the nearest parking that we could find. A beautiful walk, although the smell from the nearby sewage treatment plant was less than pleasant. There are a couple of great photo spots.

The falls were closed when we tried to visit June 2017! It said they were closed for repair; however, it looked like it would be closed for a while.

This is a beautiful area nestled along a seemingly ugly road. It is more than mildly interesting! Very tranquil. You can walk around and feel like you are in some secluded woods.

Hand-made Waterfalls

54 ft. waterfalls alongside interstate 44 -- tourists always asked where the waterfalls are located. The name, Wichita Falls, suggested there must be waterfalls, so collections were taken, and it was built on a hill beside the Wichita River. Also, there are statues of the Wichita Indians going into the river.
