Why you should visit Niagara Parks
1. Picture Perfect!
As voted by Canadians and travel writers from around the globe, Niagara Falls is the top natural wonder of Canada and one of the most photographed icons in the world! Remember to bring your camera and to let the kids get their perspective too. On a sunny afternoon you’ll be sure to catch a rainbow! If you need a camera, a variety of disposables and accessories are available at Table Rock Centre, the historic landmark next to the Horseshoe Falls.
2. Top Attractions for One Low Price
Every season Niagara Parks offers the best value for admission to our top attractions. Visit one of our Welcome Centres and ask for our Adventure Pass or the Winter Magic Pass, to get the best value for visiting Journey Behind the Falls, Niagara’s Fury and other popular Falls attractions. The Passes include value-added coupons to help you make the most of your Niagara Parks experience.
3. Brilliant Butterflies
Ever wondered what it might be like to occupy a different spot in the natural world? Wear a brightly coloured top – orange, red, hot pink or turquoise are all good choices – and stroll into the Butterfly Conservatory. In moments, you may have beautiful butterflies fluttering in for a landing, thinking you’re some brilliant exotic bloom! Open year-round, over 2,000 of these fragile creatures make this lovely rainforest setting their home.
4. The Floral Showhouse, a Scent-sational Experience
Every season of the year offers something spectacular at the Floral Showhouse. Take your mind off the hustle and bustle of life by wandering through the stunning floral displays in this tropical paradise. Enjoy the explosion of colours, the refreshing scents of flora and the sweet sounds of the resident songbirds! In summer wander the grounds through the Rose Garden and the Artist’s Garden – you won’t believe you’re in the centre of the city!
5. Experience a Winter Wonderland
Queen Victoria Park is at its most beautiful in winter, when the grand lady of Niagara Parks is decked out in a robe of snow and glassy ice created by the mist of the Falls. Add to that a crown of millions of tiny coloured lights that celebrate the Winter Festival of Lights from mid-November to mid-January. The Festival features animated displays, from Disney characters to whimsical themes that combine to create a moving, twinkling tribute to this special holiday season! Check our Events calendar to find out more about fireworks and free concerts too!
6. Rekindle Romance on a Horse & Carriage Ride
We all need a touch of romance in our lives – and what better way than on a cozy horse and carriage ride through the exquisite Niagara Parks. Carriage rides can be enjoyed year-round in Queen Victoria Park
