We stumbled across this park at the very end of our visit, around 11pm on a Sunday, and wished we'd found it sooner. It's a haven right at the foot of Clifton Hill. Beautiful landscaping and benches from which you can see the falls. Peaceful. An oasis from the hustle and bustle going on just a few yards away. If... More

Right across the street from the falls. This is such a beautiful park. Gave the camera to my 10 year old and he started to see things differently

I am surprised this park has not been reviewed more. It is a beautifully designed park and meticulously landscaped with different paths going into varied areas. Not at all big but not small either. A great spot to sit and look at the falls in the distance or to have an outdoor lunch. Kudos to the folks doing the landscaping.... More

The Oakes Garden Theatre is a very nice park along the Niagara River with beautiful views of the Falls. It is a great place to take some nice family/couple pictures. The flowers, trees, and bushes are all well kept. I recommend visiting the park, even if it is just for a few minutes.

Very pretty garden right across from the Maid of the Mist of boat ride. Definately worth checking out. Nice view down the Niagara Parkway and up and down the river as well. There was a wedding going on here with the falls in the background while I was here. Very pretty indeed. Also, check out the secret garden restaurant next... More

The Oakes Garden Theatre is the entranceway to Queen Victoria Park. Located at the foot of Clifton Hill, The Oakes Garden Theatre is only one part of the park. The park extends down parkway to Murray street. There is a nice shaded trail for walking and has many other great photo spots. The Oakes Garden Theatre is probably the most... More

Ever wish that you had some time to think, this is the place to do it. Although in the winter months it is desolate, it makes for a quiet place to sit and think. In the summer months is is flourishing with colour and beauty. Beautiful park to enjoy with family & friends. Also a short walk to the main... More

This is a nice free garden across from the falls that is very well maintained. Beautiful hedges and flower arrangements/patterns as well as structures and architecture.

We spent a short amount of time wandering around the Oakes Garden Theatre. It's free so you should definitely visit. Very serene and beautiful kept. The guys working were very helpful in identifying and explaining some of the plants.
