Monuments to Sir Isaac Brock and Laura Secord grace this attractive park that was the site of the famous Battle of Queenston Heights in October of 1812. It is a fascinating place to learn more about the Canadian and American clashes during the war of 1812. You can view the lower Niagara River, Lake Ontario, and, on a good day... More

Queenston Heights Park is a nice break from the noise of the falls and the gardens alone are worth the stop. You can learn a lot about the war of 1812 by walking around viewing the sites from the promontory.

You can go inside it and for a small fee you can climb to the top to get a good look the Niagara River and Lake Ontario. There are beautiful grounds surrounding the monument... More

Wonderful picnic area. Start of the Bruce trail. Lots of parking. Tennis courts, Wading pool. Picnic tables under pavilions in case of inclement weather. Even with the parking lot full, there is lots of space and you do not feel crowded...

We stopped into the park during our drive along the Niagara Parkway, it is obviously a favourite stop for the locals as it was very busy. Stopped at the Brock monument to enjoy the surrounding gardens and Laura Secord statue. We then continued a drive around the park noting it has lots of facilities - splash pool, swings, picnic pavilions,... More

We stopped her to have lunch at the fine restaurant in the park. But the park itself is truly beautiful. The huge memorial tower is quite impressive, and the park offers nice walking.

We really liked the statue of Laura Secord and my sister and father enjoyed the view from the top of the Brock Monument. Looking across Lake Ontario to see Toronto so clearly was a nice treat. We stopped for lunch at the restaurant there and thought the food was very good. We loved sitting outside to eat and enjoyed watching... More
