This was a nice quiet spot. The whirlpools were serene and beautiful, and a very interesting phenomenon to witness.

We viewed the whirlpool while on the US tour and the Canadian tour. The US tour gave us the better view. Up close jet boat excursions and a cable car ride above the whirlpool are available. The cable car ride originates from Canada.

This was fun to see. We didn't have a lot of time but glad we'd stopped. The whirlpools are very cool and easy to see. Looked as if there were some boat tours also. Would be a good idea for next time. Not sure if they came from the American or Canadian side.

The park is well kept up, there are clean facilities and picnic tables. Free to enter and park. Access to nice trail along the upper ridge of the Niagara and also stairs to the lower level. Great view of the Whirlpool on the Niagara river.

It was interesting especially as the electric dam was right there also and to find out 50% of the water goes into the electric co and not over the falls.
