On a clear day, you can see Toronto across Lake Ontario. Boats, big sky, beautiful water. And dozens of things to do the in Park... beautiful walkways on shorefront and forest, picnics, sports fields. Great piece of greenscape north of Buffalo.

A marvelous place to walk among towering oak trees and appreciate the fresh air and beauty of the majestic Niagara River.

This area was an active military base that... More

I met a friend at the entrance to the park, and she led me on one-hour trail walk winding all through the groves of trees and along the shore of Lake Ontario. How did I not know about this before??

On a clear day you can see Toronto from the beach. Was a peaceful place to visit on a winters day. The view of the river and the lake are amazing.

This is a nice, peaceful park to walk around especially during a nice, autumn day. You see the beautiful Lake Niagara, with Canada a stones-throw away. A very peaceful way to spend a weekend day with family or friends.

Great place to go for a picnic, a walk or a day at the pool! Very inexpensive. You can't take a cooler into the pool area but I always bring an oversized bag.

We spent one day in the Park and bought the $45.00 Adventure Pass. This provided us with 5 activities. The movie re the Falls was very informational and entertaining. The Maid of the Mist Boat ride was great and not to be missed. Each activity was excellent and all 30 members of our group enjoyed.
