Dufferin Islands Park, Niagara Falls

(4/5 based on 240+ reviews on the web)
Take a peaceful stroll surrounded by evergreen scenery at Dufferin Islands Park. Enveloped by lush green vegetation, a series of small bridges and footpaths take visitors over calm bodies of water, connecting several small man-made islands throughout the park. Spanning roughly 4 ha (10 ac), the park houses the annual Winter Festival of Lights. Bring a picnic basket and have a peaceful lunch in the company of ducks, who socialize in the ponds nearby. Plan to visit Dufferin Islands Park and other customer-reviewed, writer-recommended Niagara Falls attractions using our Niagara Falls holiday planner.
