Long Weekend Parking in Niagara Falls


Reading Time:  4 minutes -

Long weekends in Niagara Falls mean quality time with the family, epic firework displays, and lots of tourists all hoping to get in on the fun! Clifton Hill is a super popular destination for long weekend holidays, and for good reason too. The Hill has tons of activities, attractions, and restaurants that the entire family will enjoy. There’s nothing more frustrating than arriving somewhere ready to enjoy yourself, only to see that the parking situation is a nightmare. Thankfully, Clifton Hill is here to help ahead! Keep reading to make your parking experience easy-breezy so that you can spend all of your time just having fun!

Clifton Hill Parking, Steps to the Falls!

What’s more satisfying that snagging a parking spot super close to the door? Nothing! To keep the traffic flowing in and out of the Hill, we encourage you to park close-by all of the action in our newly expanded Clifton Hill parking lot. We are right off Clifton Hill; located one block to the Falls next to Queen Victoria Park, the Skylon Tower and near Fallsview Boulevard. Not only is the lot super close to the fun, but you’ll also be conveniently located near the central access to the Falls located at the bottom of Clifton Hill. The Clifton Hill parking lot is huge and extends from the rear of the Niagara SkyWheel to within metres of the Skylon Tower. There are two entrances and three exits.

One of the highlights of the weekend, of course, is the fireworks display. 2019 marks the 26th of the Falls Fireworks Series- an epic show of the best fireworks around! The shows start promptly at 10:00 p.m, so to ensure you can get a good spot and then a good view of the show, we recommend getting onto the Hill as soon as possible.

Below you will see a map that will direct you out of our lot FASTER, avoiding the hot spot traffic areas that may back you up (hint: take the side streets!). Assuming that you will be arriving via QEW Niagara and leaving via access to QEW Toronto, or back into the states, these arrows point you to the 420 which leads you to the QEW.
