This is a nice area by the falls; allowing you to view the falls and across to Canada. It was well maintained. A trolley bus was also operating; although we did use.

This unique park has a large area set aside with trails along the Niagara River away from the hustle and tourism of the falls. From here you are able to walk up and see the American Falls, but cannot see Horseshoe of Bridal Veil Falls....More
