We had driven from Utica so it was lovely to find such a wonderful park well suited to walking; yet with terrific views of the falls. The area is completely unspoiled so you see nature at its best. Tulips in bloom, birds nesting with chicks, the walk round the river and the magnificent falls - all for free; unless you choose to do Maid of the Mist or Cave of the Winds. Then a pass which encompasses both is a good buy. Try and avoid the Canadian holiday in May if you can - it was VERY busy. We only had one day to see it all and decided that 2 days would have done it justice.
