Dufferin Islands Park, Niagara Falls

4.0
#9 of 19 in Parks in Niagara Falls
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.

Where to stay in Niagara Falls

The city bordering Canada's most famous attraction offers a wide range of accommodations, with competition keeping prices surprisingly low. You'll pay a premium for views of the falls, with most of the prime real estate right by the star attraction controlled by major international hotel chains. Most sit along Niagara Parkway, which fronts the river. If you're looking for something nearby but still affordable, check the options along Victoria Avenue--you won't have a view of the falls, but you'll be just minutes from the spectacular attraction.
