This is probably an incredibly beautiful spot in June but in October it is just a bunch of bushes. Lilac leaves don't even change colour so there is not much to see here in the fall.

We were fortunate to be in Niagara Falls when the Lilacs were at their best, and we really enjoyed our stroll through this garden. There were so many different varieties and colours. There is not charge for this attraction, and parking is free.
