Saunter through 99 acres of stunning gardens, full of perennials, rhododendrons, azaleas, as well as shade, herb and vegetable plantings, a formal parterre garden, and a world-famous rose garden featuring over 2,400 roses! It’s a fantastic visual experience and a great place for capturing special moments in photographs.
Queen Victoria Park
Between Clifton & Murray Hills, across from the brink of the Falls, you’ll find Queen Victoria Park at the heart of the Niagara Parks. Whether you want to walk along the pathway or rest in the grass, you’ll be among flowers, trees, and greenery, all maintained by Niagara horticulturists. Queen Victoria Park is home to a rock garden, hanging baskets, a hybrid tea rose garden, and attractive carpet-bedding displays. Feel the cool mist of Niagara Falls in the air and the spectacular view of the Horseshoe, American, and Bridal Veil Falls. No wonder it’s a popular spot for photo-taking, picnicking, and relaxation.
Niagara River Recreational Trail
Looking for more than a stroll? For those who love to hike, the Niagara River Recreation Trail has 15 kilometres of paved pathways spanning six separate natural areas. From sandals to rollerblades or riding a bike, it’s a smooth trail for all fitness levels. Remember to bring your water bottles, sun protection, and some snacks! Along with this trail, you might spot some exciting bird species and other wildlife. Niagara is home to a unique ecosystem, so remember to respect the wildlife and only observe from a safe distance. A day enjoying the calming sights and sounds of nature amongst Niagara’s finest landscapes is just the thing to recalibrate from your everyday stresses.
