Nestled against the River Parkway at the bottom of Clifton Hill and The Oakes Hotel is a little slice of tranquility. Often called the Secret Garden, it is a complete opposite to the noise and neon that surrounds it. Beautifully landscaped and superbly maintained, this is the one spot where NORMAL is the word of the day. This is a... More

My husband and I walked around these gardens whilst touring around Niagara Falls. They are very well maintained, beautiful to relax in and idle to sit and have a break whilst providing a wonderful photo opportunity

We first saw this place in 2007 while on the bus and couldn't resist getting off to check it out. Not too much to say about it. It's a peaceful, accessible place to escape the Niagara crowds. Beautiful gardens and classic structures.

I love this garden it's in the middle of all this excitement but so quiet to just sit and relax. The lawn and surrounding gardens is so beautifully maintained. We stop here every time we are in Niagara Falls

Entrance to Queen Victoria Park in Niagara Falls, nice formal garden, like a mini-botanical garden, a little oasis in the chaos of the Clifton Hill area. Basically just a nice walk-through.

This quiet little park is beautiful - complete with a little bridge, a stream and flowers. Just a great place to sit, relax, and enjoy nature. It is completely free and you can get some great pictures here. Even though Clifton Hill with all the hustle and bustle is right around the corner, Oakes Garden is a great little haven... More

This is a decent size garden with fountains right across the street from where the boat leaves to view the Falls up close. There is a Sleeper Garden Restaurant right next to it. What is very unique is that it is almost hidden from view when walking along the street because it is at a higher level. You do get... More
