Very nice and well maintained. Goat Island, Cave of the Winds, Bridal Veil Falls, and the Maid of the Mist are all here. Keep in mind there is an admission fee for everything, including parking. Also, downtown Niagara Falls is adjacent to the park and there isn't much around besides a few souvenier shops, some motels and Indian restaurants (must... More

We did this at night, we drove to the united States side of niagra falls. It was beautiful and well worth the drive. It was dark when we left and the lights we on on the falls. It was well worth it.

Enjoyed walking through the park with my teenage daughter even though the temperature was single digit. Parked and then walked over to Goat Island. The views were gorgeous. We saw several rainbows over the Falls. I've seen the Falls many times but never thought to check them out in winter. Its now on our winter destination list.

Not as much tourist trap stuff. The park is truly a park and no fee. During peak times of day there is fee for parking. Free fireworks 3 days a week. Only $1 to go out on the overlook and down to the bottom for a great stair walk up next to the American falls. Can only go to bottom... More

This park is beautiful! We visited most recently in April and it was very quiet and peaceful, there weren't many other visitors. Beautiful views of the falls and natural areas. One of my favorite paces to go! There are many different things to do here and I think this time parking was free.

The Canadian side affords you wonder views but it is barely a park, the city simply ends and grass lined walkways take you along the gorge rim affording panoramic views of the falls. However, the American side has a very large park that is virtually immersed in the waterfalls. Lots of trees and seemingly secluded walking paths. This park allows... More

I was like a kid again when I walked up to see the splendor and vast beauty of nature. Un fortunately the really close views were closed to the public due to ice. Non the less it was worth it, totally! It's has been on my bucket list and I was not at all disappointed.. A must see...

We decided to hop over from Canada to see the falls from the American side and we are glad we did. We arrived a little later than planned so it was already dark. But we walked over to Goat Island anyway, along the river which was great to see with the rapids so close. The views from Goat Island were... More

Every season it's different, but always majestic. Just now they are doing improvements to the park and the exposition in the visitor center, which I missed a little. But I'm sure it'll be better next time I come (I've been at the falls certainly 4-5 times). The park itself and view is free, you only pay for parking closeby and... More

Very nice you can see the falls so near unfortunately that is all, the surrounding is very poor the stores look like we were in the 1980's
