What a wonderful place to discover after a few days of shuffling around Niagara Falls. We took a wonderful walk through the small park and will definitely be returning. Thankfully we experienced it when there were no crowds. Next time we’re gonna have a picnic!

A great place to get in touch with nature. Lots of birds, waterfowl, and small mammals. Just remember not to feed bread to the birds. Stop by the Dollar Store and grab a bag of mixed bird seed or a package of peanuts in the...More

I would agree, I dont see very many adults swimming in there, I dont think its as clean as it use to be. Also there are beavers....mostly people go there to walk or to picnic or just a quiet place to relax.
