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.

The Oakes Garden Theatre is a nice little park in downtown Niagara Falls. The Secret Garden restaurant is located in the park. The park is well landscaped and a visit to the park should be fairly short as there is not a tremendous amount of things to see. There is a small parking area adjacent to the park; however, be...

There was a variety of songs, with a narrator in between, taking you through the history of Elvis's life. Elvis sounded just like the real guy and had all the moves!

We sat on the steps and wathced the fireworks. The area was not crowded, there were no vendors and it had a great view. The fireworks lasted about 10 minutes.
