  • This is a nice, peaceful park to walk around especially during a nice, autumn day. You see the beautiful Lake Niagara, with Canada a stones-throw away. A very peaceful way to spend a weekend day with ...  read more »
  • Great place to go for a picnic, a walk or a day at the pool! Very inexpensive. You can't take a cooler into the pool area but I always bring an oversized bag. 
  • We spent one day in the Park and bought the $45.00 Adventure Pass. This provided us with 5 activities. The movie re the Falls was very informational and entertaining. The Maid of the Mist Boat ride wa...  read more »
  • This place was fantastic. The actors around the area take their job very seriously so it adds to the fun. It's amazing to walk around and see the architecture and how long some of this stuff has really been around for. I highly recommend watching the cannon be fired as it was very entertaining and once again the actors do a great job. Being from Colorado it was great being so close to the water like that and seeing what the area really has to offer. I highly recommend the visit. If I recall it was around $12 to get in.
  • It's a beautiful park and lake ontario was sooooo beautiful. I couldn't visit the fort because by the time we reached there it was about to be closed. It's definitely recommend.
  • The fort is very interesting and the tour guides are great. They have many events in the fort from reenactments to Buffalo Philharmonic Concerts. Check website. Park itself is fine but grounds/maintenance and staff very rude.
  • We arrived here at sunset, and the view of Lake Ontario was gorgeous. After the stressful, pushy crowds at the Falls, the serenity and seclusion of this park felt like our true vacation. My little brothers loved the playground, and the bathrooms are clean. There is a small strip of sand along the shoreline.
  • This is a nice place to visit to get away from the hustle and bustle of the Niagara Falls tourist crowd. I don't know if they normally charge an entrance fee or not but we were able to just drive right in and sit on the waterfront free of charge. There was maybe a handful of people in the whole park. It was very peaceful.
