Niagara Parks is a world
famous nature and entertainment
park centered around the magnificent Niagara Falls.
With over 1,720 hectares (4,250 acres) along a 56 km (35 mile) scenic
Parkway, Niagara Parks offer the best and the most complete way to see
From mighty rapids and the swirling
whirlpool to the thunder of
the Falls and the feel of the mist, Niagara Parks offers
adventure experience - over, beside and even behind the Falls!
The Niagara Parks Commission was created in
the mission to preserve and enhance the natural beauty of the
Falls and the Niagara River Corridor for the enjoyment of visitors
while maintaining financial self sufficiency. They are the authority on
all the Niagara Falls & Great Gorge attractions.
Niagara Parks cannot be seen in a day or two. It is an ever-shifting
spectacle for all ages. You cannot help but feel contentment and at the
same time captivated by the natural beauty of the Falls themselves and
the surrounding Parklands that lie parallel to the Niagara River from
Lake Erie to Lake Ontario.
During the Fall months, Niagara is the place to visit. Trees in the
Niagara gorge are painted vibrant reds, browns, golds and orange. Fall
foliage is usually at its best in late October.
If "birding" is your thing, than you want to be here during the months
of November and December. That's when thousands of gulls and terns
congregate around the falls and rapids. Aproximately 100 different
varieties of water birds have been recorded along the river.
