Beautiful Cascade Falls Regional Park In Mission British Columbia

Located an easy 30 minutes to the north east of Mission, British Columbia where I happen to reside, is one of our hidden gems called Cascade Falls Regional Park. Recently having undergone major upgrades, including a new Suspension Bridge for you to enjoy the view, this area is now definitely a major attraction in this part of BC.

A picture perfect Park now with an added Suspension Bridge to enjoy!

For those outdoor enthusiasts, this 22 hectare regional park now offers picnic tables, toilet facilities, hiking trails and well – groomed easy walking trails to the new platform areas to easily view the beautiful 30 meter Cascade Falls.

Cascading Falls and Hydro Electric Power

A Few Facts  On Hydroelectric Power In British Columbia

Our many beautiful waterfalls and rivers in BC produce hydroelectric power, or electricity that is generated by hydro power, which is produced by nature’s own gravitational force of fast flowing water.

These hydroelectric facilities produce clean and renewable energy for years. In fact, most of our electricity in British Columbia comes from hydroelectricity.

So while you’re enjoying the beauty of the Falls, at the same time our rivers and cascading falls are producing electricity by flowing into the many powerhouse stations in the Province that collect and produce electricity using a Turbine Generator.

Take A Refreshing Dip At Cascade Falls

During those hot summer days, all along McConnell Creek above and below the falls, are perfect swimming holes where you can take a dip in the crystal clear mountain fresh water and at the time, enjoy nature surrounding you.

A perfect location to enjoy a hot summers day!

So if you are looking for a place to stop and enjoy Mission’s beautiful scenery, have a picnic and / or take a dip in the summer, then you simply must mark Cascade Falls on your map.

Getting to Cascade Falls Regional Park is easy either heading to or leaving Mission City off Highway #7.  Below are detailed directions to the Falls and I have included a pin map showing the exact location and where you can also access Google Map directions.

From Mission

Cascade Falls Regional Park Information Sign

From the town of Mission, travel east on Highway #7 and head eastbound towards Harrison Hot Springs. Approximately 6 km from Mission, turn left onto Sylvester Road. There is a large Husky Service Station at this intersection. There is a small Cascade Falls Park sign just before the turn.

Follow Sylvester Road for about 15 km through Mission’s main farming area. Well marked signs to the falls will indicate a right turn onto Ridgeview Road which leads into the main parking area.

Safe and Healthy Travels! 🙂
