Built by the citizens of Tallahassee and Leon County, Cascades Park offers 24-acres of outdoor and recreational amenities, including miles of multi-use trails, a state-of-the-art amphitheater, an interactive fountain, children’s playscape and numerous historical points of interest.

Whether you come for an hour or stay for the entire day, there’s always something enjoyable to do at Cascades.

Common Purpose.
Uncommon Passion.

Once an abandoned brownfield, Cascades is now the pride of Tallahassee and a major driver of economic growth. 

This decades-long transformation was made possible by the visionary efforts of Blueprint2000 – the intergovernmental agency that spearheaded the revitalization of Cascades Park starting in the early 2000’s – followed by years of collaboration and support from public and private partners, including the City of Tallahassee, Leon County, the Leon County Division of Tourism/Visit Tallahassee, KCCI, corporate donors and engaged citizens. 

Their efforts to revive the park and build the surrounding infrastructure resulted in a $150 million private investment by commercial developer, North American Properties (NAP), and hotel developer, Robert Finvarb Companies. That investment is now fueling the fulfillment of the community’s desire for a bustling 18-hour downtown, while also generating $350 million in economic impact.
