Queenston Heights Park, Queenston

4.6
#3 of 8 in Historic Sites 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.

  • Lovely views!!! Went here with family, we had a good time walking around and taking pictures of the views. We went on a day were it was cold and icy but it was worth it, the pictures turned out beautifully
  • We love taking the drive here with the kids. There is a park for them to play at and paths to follow to check out everything else the park has offer. There is a restaurant, the tower ( my kids loved that the employees there are in costume) and amazing views all over the park.They also have barbecue pits there for picnics or family get togethers. And when you're done all that during the summer there is also a little place to get ice cream.
  • Great location for learning about the Battle of Queenston Heights. Nice monument dedicated to General Brock as well as an excellent indigenous learning area in the centre of the park. Check it out!
  • Best day time park in the area. Great overlook of the Niagara river pushing it's way to lake Ontario. Nicelylaid out plaques tell the of the logistics of how the Heights were won back from the Americans. Well kept facility 12 months a year. The fact it is the starting point of the famous Bruce Trail which stretches north to Tobermorey adds to it's notriety. Oozing in history.
  • 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.
