Queen Victoria Park is the "heart" of the Niagara Parks. Bounded by the escarpment, the Niagara Gorge, and the Niagara River, the park features a valuable collection of unique native and international plant material from around the world.
Much of the plant material is labelled for the benefit of the public. The park also features a major rock garden, a Hybrid tea rose garden, and attractive carpet-bedding displays. Numerous park benches and beautiful lawns provide a pleasant opportunity for relaxation for the weary traveller.
Landscape illumination is an integral part of the park environment, as is the illumination of the Falls.
Queen Victoria Park celebrates each season in style. Every spring, 500,000 daffodils herald the arrival of this season in a natural, welcoming way. Magnificent magnolias, breathtaking tulips and other spring blooming plants play host to spring in the park.
Summer features carpet bedding displays as well as thousands of bedding plants throughout the park. Fuchsia and Lantana standards, cannas, coleus, and many other plants provide horticultural and aesthetic points of interest.
Chrysanthemums and Kale have been used in the fall to extend the season and to provide interest after the arrival of "Jack Frost".
During the winter months, the stark branches of trees and shrubs create visual and special interest for our visitors, especially when coated with ice from the freezing mist of the Falls.
