Queen's Royal Park

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. The gazebo has since become a popular romantic setting for proposals and wedding ceremonies. Close to the town center, the park offers wonderful lake views with walkways, tree cover and picnic tables.

Queenston Heights

Nestled high atop Niagara Escarpment, Queenston Heights is a heritage park beloved for generations. As a Canadian national heritage site, the park features a large monument in tribute to Sir Isaac Brock, ‘Saviour of Upper Canada’ who fought in the 1812 Battle of Queenston Heights. Take pleasure in the exquisite gardens and fantastic views of the Niagara River as it winds its way to Lake Ontario.

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.

Whirlpool Rapids

These frothing rapids really put on a dramatic display. One of the world’s most astonishing natural phenomena, the Niagara Whirlpool is formed by the force of massive water rushing over the Falls. Vast amounts of water, suddenly trapped in the narrow Niagara Gorge, begin to turn counterclockwise. An abrupt change in river direction is what creates such remarkable rapids. Truly enthralling!
