Kursunlu Waterfall is located in Aksu district of Antalya. The Kursunlu waterfall is visited by millions of domestic and foreign tourists every year. Kursunlu waterfall’s water is poured from an altitude of 18 meters and 7 small ponds are connected to each other with small waterfalls. Kursunlu waterfall is located in a 2 km Canyon. Since it has a unique natural landscape feature in which the samples of healthy forest tissue and rich flora are integrated with interesting water and rock forms, and Kurşunlu waterfall which constitutes its important feature, the 394 hectare section is reserved as a natural park in 1991. The waterfall and picnic area cover an area of 33 hectares. In the picnic area, there are terraces for the landscape view, children’s park, restaurants and hiking areas.

It is the Taurus sediment or Lebanese sediment, which is the type of tree you can mostly see in nature park. This type of cedar trees, which are very few in the world, are located within the National Park area, and greet visitors with their enthusiasm.
