Our tour guide at Fort George mentioned the Battle of Queenston Heights so we took a drive to see the Brock Monument. We drove along the Niagara River Parkway and up the hill to the monument. It was a beautiful Autumn drive. The monument and the park are pristine. It seems everything there has been cleaned and renovated the 200th... More

Sir Isaac Brock is buried at the base of the monument along with his aide-de-camp. This is the second monument on this site; the first one was damaged in a bombing. For a sense of the height of the monument, and the height of Queenston Heights, pay the fee and climb the 235 steps.

Not far from Niagara on the Lake along the Niagara river and on top of the escarpment the battle raged and now poor old Brock stands all day on top of his tower facing the Americans daring them to invade again....Get some bread and cheese in town and make a picnic of it or visit the restaurant on side...I must...

We stopped here and had a nice walk around. Unfortunately I wasnt about to pay 4.50 for a claustrophobic climb to the top Lots of history and things to see you should stop by

Came upon this somewhat accidentally but wow! Beautiful park area with an impressive monument from the War of 1812. You can climb up the inside of the monument - views are amazing from the top - but not for the faint-hearted!

Gorgeous park. Went with my husband and wished we'd brought the kids and their bikes. You could easily spend a few hours biking around the paths here. (We were there in September, so it was quiet...it might be too busy for bikes in the summer). The monument is lovely, but I wouldn't suggest climbing it. It's physically demanding and might... More

The views of the Niagara River and surrounding area are stunning. The Brock Memorial is very impressive and Parks Canada has provided some good descriptions of what happened here 200 years ago. The flowers and the landscaping are well planned and maintained. If you get a chance to visit this attraction I'm sure that you'll enjoy it.

I hiked up the stairs from Queenston and very happy I did. The landscaping was beautiful, learned a bit of history and really enjoyed the view.

The trip we took to Queenston Heights was wonderful, especially Brock's Monument. The view of the Niagara River, Niagara, Lake Ontario and Toronto was truly spectacular. The costumed staff were friendly, helpful and very knowledgeable about the Monument, Brock and the War of 1812. The climb was relatively steep but it was worth the 4.50 (which I asked and it...

I can't speak for the climb as I arrived to late in the day, but the monument itself is spectacular! This is one of those spiritual places that makes you pause and reflect on the sacrifices of those that fought for our interests. That Sir Isaac Brock is actually buried beneath just adds to the ambience.
