Nestled in the Mohawk River Valley, Little Falls, New York, is centrally located between Syracuse and Albany and borders beautiful Adirondack Park. From various vantage points, the view is compelling if not breathtaking, especially in the fall. The contemporary Erie Canal is a significant feature of the city. This grand waterway, once a conduit for major commercial traffic, has become a clean, attractive destination for boating and other recreational activities. Parks and open areas are available for walking, games, or just relaxing. Moreland Park, for example, is a wooded setting that has facilities for small group picnics and outings.
