The waterfall located on the shore at the north end of Lake Phalen, has been dry for many years. Originally, water was supplied by a nearby well to flow over the waterfall and directly to Lake Phalen to replenish the apparently receding water levels.
The City of Saint Paul Department of Parks and Recreation has now secured a State of Minnesota Legacy Grant to restore the waterfall. Plans for this restoration are to draw water from either Lake Phalen or Round Lake and return the water to the lake.
Construction should begin in late summer and be complete by Spring 2013
