Queenston Heights Park, Queenston

4.6
#3 of 7 in Parks in Niagara-on-the-Lake
Appreciate both the history and greenery of Queenston Heights Park. Stroll across the flat grassy grounds, dotted with plenty of trees, and don't miss the centerpiece of the park, a 56 m (185 ft) monument to Major General Sir Isaac Brock. Sir Brock, one of Canada's heroes of the War of 1812, was killed in battle on this site. Climb the 235 spiraling stairs to a lookout with views of the surrounding area and Lake Ontario. The park is also the beginning of a trail leading to Tobermory.

  • I grew up in the Niagara region and this was a favorite place for our family. All seasons! Wonderful memories of cross country skiing in the winter and the Bandshell music in the summer. Still visit and enjoy when I visit.
  • Amazing park facility. Pavilion rental procedure was simple and the staff were amazingly helpful. The weekend was unseasonably hot, so the employees opened the splash pad so the kids attending my son's birthday could play. This was especially great since the play ground was closed for repairs.
  • A cannot miss when in Niagara area. Beautiful tree park. Historical site. Great for picnic, jogging, pictures. Breath taking view of the Niagara on the Lake Valley. General Brock monument that is bigger then the one in Trafalgar Square in the UK and did I mention you can climb up to the top to see the amazing view for a around 6 dollars which goes back to maintain the park. Great place for long walks and biking up the challenging paved trail. Old the Queenston Heights restaurant is 4 Star with colonial charm. Drop by for lunch but don't miss the 5 Star weekend brunch with Chef service. Best to make reservations if you can. Great place for picnic or group picnics! Lot of space to play sports. Enjoy the latest addition of First Nation monuments paying respect for their contributions in the War of 1812-14.
  • Beautiful parks for walking, picnicking, exploring. Grounds are immaculate. Lots of history to learn about the War of 1812. Plan on visiting the restaurant next time we're in the area. Definitely worth the visit if driving between Niagara Falls and Niagara-on-the-Lake.
  • Beautiful spot. The pavilion rentals sometimes get a bit crowded but there is lots of open space for the kids to play as well as a playground and splash pad. Great views and landmarks. Definitely worth checking this one out.

Where to stay in Niagara-on-the-Lake

Niagara-on-the-Lake abounds with accommodations that can be more affordable than those just a few minutes south in the city of Niagara Falls. The town's grid-like streets offer an array of choices, with Mary Street, Mississauga Street, and Queen Street among the most popular. If you're looking for something a bit more luxurious and don't mind paying extra, stay near the lakeshore and enjoy waterfront views from your bed and breakfast.
