... 6 billion years old. This area is so old because the gorge that the water falls into below was carved out of the rock face by the Precambrian Shield when it receded at the end of the last Ice Age.

The Kakabeka Provincial Park is managed by Ontario Parks and has been since 1955. This means that is it a protected area, where no development can take place and visitors to the park are expected to respect and take care of this natural area and leave it in the condition in which they came to it.
