We were visiting the Old Fort in winter and it was too cold to enjoy the park, but I can imagine it a great place to spend a summer day with the kids. There are soccer fields, picknick areas and playgrounds.

This park was a great find. Great tour from a park volunteer. Museum then tour the fort. Lots of history and people dressed in uniforms and period costumes. Fife and drum were awesome. Can't wait to take the grand kids.

Well what can you say about Niagara Falls that has not already been said. It is an amazing site to see from any view point. Some say the view is better from the Canadian side, I would say it is only a different angle. I...More
