There is not much to look at. We looked around and we saw a cannon laying on the ground and that's about it. I would not recommend this place. Go to fort Niagara and see something interesting.

Beautiful park overlooking Lake Ontario. Many cannons in the park. And others building, but we didn't go to because we were cold during the winter.
