The Floral Clock is a lovely little landmark amid the grandeur of the Niagara River and Falls. If you have the time, it is worth the drive to the pretty park that contains the clock, which is beautifully maintained and very colorful. The smallish parking lot is close by. Just don't expect to get a photo without other people in... More

We have visited this site before and it is simply beautiful. It is just a nice place to stop and enjoy a garden-type setting on the drive between Niagara Falls and Niagara On The Lake.

This is a very beautifully maintained attraction. The design and the beauty of the clock is wonderful to behold. But even though it is beautiful, I wouldn't go out of my way to see this. Just not enough to it by itself. Perhaps if you combined it with a visit to the nearby arboretum it would make sense. I didn't... More

Since 1950, Canada’s “Flower Power clock” has been maintained by Niagara Parks horticulture staff. The clock mechanism is maintained by Ontario Hydro, which originally built the clock. The timepiece face is created by 16,000 bedding plants, and the floral design is changed twice each year, in spring and summer. California Golden Privet and Blue Festuca Grass may be used for...

This spot is great to see the clock with the flowers but its not worth the time to get out of the car. You can drive by and take a picture of it from the road but other then that I wouldn't spend to much time at this spot.

For whatever reason, my tour stopped here; I took a pic, use restroom and that's it. There is a store to buy souvenirs, snacks and drinks. besides that, there is nothing interesting about this place.

The clock is viewable because of size but did not find it breath taking. Something to just drive by to see.
