Variety, Colours, Fragrances, Atmosphere and an experience like you will never have again at this Lilac Garden. Every variety of Lilac is specified by the well maintained park. The outstanding Colours of some of the species is marvelous and the fragrances are breath taking. As a resident of Niagara Falls, I am fortunate to be able to take in this... More

Because of the late spring we got to see the lilacs in bloom. As soon as you open your car door a wave of amazing lilacs scent hits you. There is no charge to visit or park, a huge plus after being nickel and dimed at every stop to pay for parking. You can walk freely around the lilacs, checking... More

My husband and I visited on our way to a winery tour. Visiting in June, we were not likely to see much, but still wanted to see it. We had read that it was 10 acres of lilacs with a collection of over 1200 plants and 200 different varieties, even not in bloom this would be spectacular to see. When... More

When I was here the garden was in full bloom and it smelled wonderful. There are also picnic tables in the area. The garden is close to the Floral Clock and nature trail.

I love lilacs, so we went here full of anticipation after a wonderful Mother's day lunch .... but the only thing that made me smile was the company that was with me. You would almost think that given the very short blooming season for lilacs that the gardeners for this spot would have made a special effort to prepare it... More

I had never seen so many lilacs in bloom in one place. The scent was amazing and every color displayed. They were so healthy and full of blooms.

If you are planning to visit Niagara Falls, Canada in or around May I suggest you stop by the Centennial Lilac Gardens. They say the lilacs bloom May into June, so this is the best time to view these gardens. They are located right off the Parkway close to the Butterfly Conservatory, Floral Clock , Sir Adam Beck Power Plant... More
