Be A Junior Ranger

Junior Ranger Program

Children 5 and up are invited to participate in the Junior Ranger Program. The program is an exciting experience for those wishing to explore the park.

There are two booklets, one for ages 5-7, and the second for ages 8-12. Kids and parents can pick up booklets at the Visitor Center.

Most Junior Rangers complete the booklet in one to two hours, but may take as much time as they wish to finish. Children who complete the booklet earn a Junior Ranger Badge to honor their accomplishments.

The Junior Ranger booklets are available to download here.

The second carousel in Great Falls Park

There used to be a carousel at Great Falls Park. A flood caused by Hurricane Agnes in 1972 damaged the carousel beyond repair.
