Amsterdam Quadrangle

Kirk Douglas Park FallsKirk Douglas Park is one of several parks within the city of Amsterdam.  This one obviously is named to honor the hometown actor.  The park itself might be deceptive to find without directions since it is surrounded by cement walls and a number of one-way streets in the area.  The waterfall is actually a series of drops with the primary one being a curtain cascade that drops about 10'.  Below that there is a slide type drop totally another twenty feet.  Both of these sections are upstream of the Guy Park Avenue Extension bridge.  Downstream of this there is another small section that probably is best described as a rapids.

The water from the North Chuctanunda Creek makes its way into the Mohawk River and the Hudson River before reaching the Atlantic Ocean in New York City.
