Visited on New Years Eve. Very few people as everyone was in town and access was restricted. Had to get to it by devious means

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 shell. Much healthier for them.

As always, our frequent visits to Canada to view the breathtaking creation of the wonderous Niagara Falls and Horseshoe Falls is the accompanied viewing of the beautiful landcaped causeway that always reflects the various times of the year: spring, summer, fall and of course winter, and the holidays - incredible lights that adorn large trees, bushes, light posts, sculptures and buildings. However, on our last visit we found something new and exciting: Dufferin Islands Park which is located on 7400 Portage Roade, Niagara Falls, Ontario. This park is a bit further down the winding causeway past the Horseshoe falls. On the right side of this causeway you will see a brightly-lit arrow that directs you toward an entryway of a spectical of lights known as the “Winter Festival of Lights” - an public show that occurs annually from November through January. The entry overhead shows a lit gold bow, and then you see colors of red, bright blue, white, gold and green that adorn tall trees surrounding a park-like setting, a lake that we were unaware had existed – and as a bonus the reflective lights of the beautifully lit trees on the lake’s surface. Sculptures of bears, an elephant, large winding ribbons, and on special display reflective of the Canadian Arctic were three-stone structures “erected” by the Inuit also known as inukshukt that represent the shape of a person with stretched out arms.There is parking mid-way into this public space - we saw several families walking on the snow-covered ground while taking photos on this cold, crisp evening. In summary, Dufferin Island Park is a “must see” especially for those looking for a holiday light display that is really spectacular.
