The leaded waterfall waiting to be discovered in its natural structure until the year 1986 was turned into a nature park in order to contribute to Antalya tourism after this date. Within the scope of this project, picnic areas, landscape viewing platforms, playgrounds, walkways providing ease of navigation were built in the surrounding areas of the waterfall and pond area. However, parking lots that serve to facilitate private transportation are also included in the area.
The mentioned main waterfall is poured from an 18 meter high. The seven ponds that have come together with the relatively smaller waterfalls constitute the unity of the leaded waterfalls. Gölcükler is about 6 meters deep and covers an area of 1600 square meters. The diversity of the rich vegetation and shrub formation of the oriental waterfall is a distinct element that increases the natural beauty.

The leaded waterfall area is a family home like boar, fox, rabbit, squirrel, bat, ibibik, woodpecker. In addition, submersiblity provides the development of interesting formations that span a broad spectrum.
