If it's open, you might be tempted to climb the inside of this monument, but it's crowded and very hot -- and not worth it for the view through the little portholes. Enjoy the view from the restaurant instead!

This monument is a good place to learn a little history by reading the signage. The views are great. It is worth a quick stop.

great park, better restaurant. Stop off and get a picnic lunch, visit a winery and have a picnic in the park. Not sure if Canada has open container laws... Don't forget glasses, although it was fun sharing a bottle.

When you are travelling the Niagara Park way you have to stop and climb the monument. Just because. Nice view once you get to the top. $4.50 To climb up.

I think someone said several hundred. Too many for me because I don't like stairs to begin with, nor heights.
