Hours: St. Patrick’s Day – Thursday, March 17, 2011
The dyeing of the waterfall will be at 12 noon and again at 4:00 pm.
At 3:45 there will be a treasure hunt through the secret garden and an Irish snack for $5.00 (intended for kids in K-2nd grade).
Parking: There is a large parking lot with free parking.
Bathrooms: Available in the nearby buildings.
Handicapped/stroller accessibility: The waterfall is across a grassy field from the parking lot, near the Nature Center. There is a path from the parking lot to the Nature Center. The path alongside the waterfall is very rough & often muddy.
Food/eating area: Food is not available. Lake Katherine does not allow picnics. There are many restaurants nearby, as well as parks. We often picnic at Homerding Park in Worth, located at 116th and Oak Park.
We paid: Nothing
Our experience: We’ve gone to the waterfall dyeing at Lake Katherine the past two years. We have a great time. There are paths nearby and a large field of grass (perfect for running). Cooper loved seeing the water turn green.
