This place is located approx 1 km away from the falls and has free parking vs the $20 parking a little closer. The park itself is very nice, tons of birds and Canadian Geese, which result in a lot of poop everywhere. Lots of people...More

The area is decked out in thousands of lights for local charities, as you drive through in the winter time. What a place of inspiration, and romance. In the summer and fall, it is a great walk and picnic area, and with sheltered trees, it...More

Dufferin Islands Park is a tranquil refuge away from the huge crowds along the parkway overlooking the Niagara River and the two breath-taking waterfalls. It consists of several tiny islands connected by bridges along an easily followed path. There is parking as well as restrooms,...More

We were first here during the festival of lights. It was beautiful at that time. However, this place is beautiful in the summer! The lake, trails, trees, geese, ducks, seagulls, rabbits, chipmunks.....so much nature packed into the area. We can't wait to go back to...More

I would agree, I dont see very many adults swimming in there, I dont think its as clean as it use to be. Also there are beavers....mostly people go there to walk or to picnic or just a quiet place to relax.
