Niagara Floral Clock

The Niagara Floral Clock was originally launched by Ontario Hydro in 1950 which continues to operate the clock mechanism in timely fashion. Known for great gardening flair, Niagara Parks horticulture staff maintain the clock’s floral face. Over 16,000 colourful annuals and carpet plants are used in the design. The unique clock – the largest of its kind – also boasts a lovely water garden. Adding to the charm, visitors are greeted each quarter hour by Westminster chimes housed in a tower behind the clock.

Travelling the Niagara Parkway is always an alluring ride. The popular scenic route is filled with enchanting river views and a countryside sprinkled with vineyards.

There’s a bit of Hollywood to be found at Queen’s Royal Park. On a quiet pocket on the edge of Niagara-on-the-Lake, you’ll find a gazebo that was originally created as a prop for The Dead Zone movie.
