Another one of the many names that I made up on a whim. This time, because the little falls is adjacent to Menzies Lane. If you live in the area and know of a more widespread name, please let me know!

This very small cascade is probably dry for much of the year. I wouldn't recommend going out of your way just to see a little waterfall like this!

The falls appear where a storm drain empties into the gorge of the Grand River. It's quite possible that this is an old buried creek that once drained through downtown. Either way, don't be surprised if this is dry for much of the year.

You can see this falls from the footbridge over the Grand River, as well as from the parking lot for the Fergus Marketplace.

The good news is that it is found just a few steps from your view of the Fergus Cascade (see entry for). Not that that cascade is all that much more exciting, mind you. But with the St. Andrews Cascade and Confederation Park Falls also in Fergus, this little cascade gives you one more thing to look for.
