The greenhouse was stunning with a full house of white, pink and rose cyclamens. The succulent plants indoors are a wonder to see. But best of all was the outdoor trail which featured several models and a most interesting display of birdhouses, all constructed from...More

You must cant imagine how beautiful all of the plantings are along the Parks Garden Trail. The hanging baskets and the street plantings are just out of this world. Worth the trip to NOTL just to see their plantings and to ride the trail.

If you are in Niagara on the Lake it is worth checking out all the beautiful flowers that line the streets. They are HUGE! There are plenty to see and lots of places to sit and marvel at the nature.

Great. Just great. A perfect long wide walkway all along the river and falls. We went both daytime, and again for the free 10 pm fireworks. We parked effectively in town toward NE side, and about 1 block in from the river, for about $3...More

You can walk on the Niagara Parks Trail from Niagara-on-the-Lake to Niagara Falls area. Its a long trail, but beautiful view of the Niagara river, Brock Monument, Laura Secord's home, etc.
