  • A must! Moving monument to a man who gave his life in battle. Beautiful grounds for a meditative walk. 
  • Massive monument and a very large park for picnics, dining on premises, sports field, playground, tennis, splashpad, hiking trails. Crowded on weekends. 
  • WE took a very nice walk from Queenston to this Monument. Beautiful even on a cold Winter day. Beautiful grounds.

  • Beautiful park. We've driven by this so many times on our way to the States and hadn't stopped till today. It was well worth the visit.
  • The park and restaurant at the monument are nice. If you in the area check it out but not worth making a special trip for.
  • The monument is very tall, magnificent. very historic
  • Incredible! I can't wait to climb the stairs!!!!!
  • Amazing view of the river from way up inside the Monument if you don't mind climbing the narrow stairs. I submitted a picture to the images.
