Welcome to Paterson Great Falls National Historical Park!
Spring and Fall weather can be cool, while summer is usually warm and humid. Winter is frequently snowy and cold. It is recommended that visitors dress for the weather. Visitors may need jackets or rain gear as the park is primarily outdoors and unsheltered during inclement weather. Please keep any rain gear/umbrellas with you during your visit.National Weather Service 7-Day Forecast for the Paterson region
