During the Christmas season, the park is decorated with lights and should be seen. It is a nice visual sight at night time and actually enjoyable. There appears to have been some improvements over past years. However, suggest that you try to time your visit so as not to have wait too long to get in. When we visited, the... More

Many trees in the park are decorated for the Christmas season with reflections in the water for additional effects. Parking is easy for a walk or you can drive through at your leisure. Where parking is by fee only in most attractions in Niagara this is free. A nice change for anyone on a budget.

Stumbled upon the lights around this Park. Very nice attraction for an evening drive. The lights reflecting off the water were very pretty.

We went for the opening night of the christmas lights and this year is a good year. I liked all the light displays and where they have been placed as well. So many different ones i have never seen

Beautiful park to visit, all the little islands are connected with bridges and there is so much wildlife. It's free to enter and there are a few signs dotted about here and there with information. If you have a free afternoon this is a must see!

This is a nice place to get away from the crowds and walk our dog. There is a trail all around with bridges to the islands. There are lots of ducks and geese in the river and we even saw a mink in the river and also running around on land. They were putting up lighted animals throughout the park.

If you want a side trip after the falls this is pretty relaxing. Apparently during the winter they have lighting displays which is a local hit.

Loved the conservation paths and wildlife. Cant really get lost because all the paths lead back to each other.
