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.

  • Great place to have a short (35-45 minutes) hike, and learn a little bit of history. Be careful, the trail for the "tour" is poorly marked. Get a good idea before you start and you will be fine.
  • Beautiful park with picnic areas, green space and shaded areas. Access to the Bruce trail and Niagara Parkway Recreational Trail. Some great Canadian History can be learned by exploring the monument.
  • A great park that offers a place for a variety of activities. They have tennis courts, a play ground, hiking/biking trails, charcoal bbqs and lots of open space.
  • Love it. Big , beautiful nature. Bruce trail starts here as well. Lots to do. Tennis courts, kids playground available.
  • Great quiet park with various markers of the Battle of Queenston Heights. Nice photo opps throughout the park. There is a restaurant on the premises but we found it too expensive.

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.
