Guess July 5th was an extremely busy day. No parking, mobs of people all over. Even tour buses cancelled certain visits in the park. I'll come back and visit Canada side. Maybe I can get away from the massive groups of people.

You get to Goat Island through Niagara Falls State Park. This is a walking park. It is not big but it has a lot of attractions. You can take a Trolley Ride around the Park/Island and get on and off. Goat Island is right in the middle of the Niagara River and the scenery is spectacular. You will be surprised... More

I heard that this park is one of the oldest state park. Beautiful gardens and greenery, spectacular views, lots of interesting facts. There are trails that will bring you close to the falls. This is worth exploring. I wish there was more time. Give yourself several days to explore all the fascinations in Niagara Falls - maid of the mist,... More

The 1.00 observation deck is breathtaking , the many paths and trails around the park and along the water or around falls are perfectly situated to give you a great view of the water and falls. The park was clean and the weather was perfect. A must visit when in town. Most of the sight seeing places are free but... More

Falling apart - advance purchase of pass means nothing. You still stand in line with others just arriving. Tear off tickets are hard to do and old fashioned, YOU need to look at what you neighbor does and not pocket the money . 😧😪thumbs down New York. ADA is the law of the land and this park is not in...

Happy I went. I did like Canadian side better, to get behind the falls. Didn't do the boat trip, but it would have been interesting but added cost
