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.

  • Lovely park to walk around or sit for a bite to eat. We had a chance to really enjoy it because the weather was beautiful! 
  • Make sure that you stop by this park and check it out. This is well worth the time and you will be glad that you did. So beautiful. 
  • What a lovely place to sit and people watch when you take a break from shopping on Queen St. Or send your patient husband there to take advantage if the MAN chairs. 
  • A good park but there is not much arrangements for people to sit as some of the "huts" are booked by others. Would recommend to bring you own chairs and such. Great for having a BBQ as there are many in the area. A lot of monuments are there which makes the park very interesting, also a walking trail. Great park, very much enjoyed it :) Would give 5 out of 5 but the seating was a hassle for us.
  • This park is quiet and and full of very tall trees. It is comfortable to walk through the woods in a hot day. Remember to visit the monument to learn about the battle that happened more than 200 years ago.
  • Beautiful park in Queenston, real close to the border crossing. The park is located on the grounds of one of the first major battles of the war of 1812. Namely, the battle of Queenston Heights, where the troops of Upper Canada (Present day Ontario) were able to repel the Americans. This is also where Sir Issac Brock (the namesake of Brock University) was killed in action. These days the battleground is a lovely place to have a picnic with pavilions, a playground, washrooms, and vending machines. Plenty of parking is available and the park is accessible by public transit via the WEGO Green line. Another great feature of the park is the brock monument where one can climb to the top and get an amazing view of the Niagara Escarpment and the Niagara River. If you're visiting Niagara Falls, or even if you're a local, you've got to have a picnic at Queenston Heights.
  • Great piece of the Niagara Region to visit for a picnic/hike or host a family reunion. I went to a few reunions there as a kid however after a 18 year absence I recently returned with the in-laws on a Wednesday afternoon. They have BBQs available for rent. Large pavilions. General store (an ice cream destination FYI).
  • Plenty of Space for picnics and BBQ'S. As well as utilities st close distance away from picnic area. There are playgrounds to entertain kids, as well as Tennis courts. Many trails as well, for a hike.
