Queenston Heights Park, Queenston
(4.5/5 based on 150+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • The Brock Monument was pointed out to us while on the Whirlpool Jet Boat Tour, so we decided to make a quick stop at Queenton Heights Park during our drive down the parkway. It is a very pretty spot t...  more »
  • Great views over the Niagara river / escarpment and Lake Ontario Clean, very well kept gardens and park areas. the monuments are great and the restaurant is a must visit, for the food and views. 
  • Good washrooms and a good place to park to get a closer look at the monument. Beautiful trees. Very pretty spot for a picnic along the Parkway.

  • A beautiful park, known for the monument to General Sir Isaac Brock (War of 1812) and Laura Secord. It now contains the Landscape of Nations: The Six Nations and Native Allies Commemorative Memorial - a beautiful tribute to the many First Nations Peoples who participated in the War of 1812. There are views of the Niagara River and walkways along the escarpment, as well as a seasonal restaurant & snack shop.
  • 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. Very well maintained with many nice sceneries to enjoy and take picture of. There is an obelisk dedicated to commander Brock which you can visit and for a small fee of $4 climb up the stairs to the top to enjoy view from the top.
  • Well maintained. Great hiking trails. Laura Secord and Bruce trail connections. Very clean park with restroom facilities and ample parking.
