The Great Falls of the Passaic River are the centerpiece of the Great Falls National Park. The falls and the surrounding park land were added to the inventory of the National Park Service in 2011.The 77-foot-high falls are the second largest — Niagara Falls are the first — in terms of volume and width east of the Mississippi River. The park service recently started a project to build an amphitheater in which the audience will be treated a view of the falls and other improvements.
