- If you are visiting NotL make sure you spend some time visiting Fort George. This is a great faithful reconstruction of the original site complete with some original artefacts. There are heaps of staff on site, in period costume, who are very knowledgeable and eager to answer your questions. Having no knowledge of the history of the area, I walked away with a good understanding of the history around the 1812 war. Make sure you time your visit for the musket demonstration - this is well worth seeing. The person demonstrating one of the weapons had some difficulty with the firing mechanism highlighting the issues with this type of weapon - the commentary was hilarious and had us all laughing.Written October 8, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- This park has become quite pricey. Parking is now $20 flat rate for 4 or more hours! Washrooms are far away and park is not handicap accessible.
Rental of a shared area in the pavilion with a small charcoal bbq is pricey too.
But- our family (52 of us came this year) had a great time and the kids love the splash pool.Written August 28, 2023
- The site is peaceful as it is Impressive in size and stature. The Limestone monument is Located in beautiful green space/park with a walk about area featuring historic plaques, statues and points of interest. Benches and seating are situated for viewing the surrounding Niagara/Lewiston area. Quite insightful. Well kept. Parking available. Recommend.Written March 27, 2023
- We only stopped because its between the more major attractions. It was neat, but nothing exciting. There is ample parkingWritten June 28, 2023
- Viewing point to see Toronto (in theory) and Fort Niagara in the United States. Pretty enough views but nothing really of note, you can walk along the lake side which is quite peasant in the right weather.Written May 20, 2023
Such a cute shop!
Such lovely staff on hand!
Such delicious fresh sandwiches and treats!

- A short but very informative tour of the Laura Secord House. The tour guide we had really knew her history. Thank you for a nice time.Written September 24, 2022
- The park is perfect for picnics. Grab a sandwich and a drink and find a shady table for the family, or just you and your companion. Greenery and flowers abound.Written September 12, 2022
- A very interesting building, all made of wood as are mist of the buildings in this area. Looking through the windows you can see a huge range of what used to be the latest medical equipment. It was originally operated as the the apothecary but closed in 1964 and was subsequently opened as a museum.Written May 20, 2023
- Pretty cool to see such a small church. Had lunch and dessert at the fruit stand nextdoor. Washrooms on property. Only thing that threw us off was the pin on google maps was incorrect, so make sure to add exact address in google (rather than smallest church notl).Written May 28, 2023
- Ryerson Park is a beautiful scenic stop while walking alongside the shores of Lake Ontario. We got to watch sailboats pass by. You feel the wind coming off the lake, so dress warmly! It's a lovely time to slow down and enjoy the view.Written November 23, 2023
- If you like lilacs, this is the place to be. They offer a variety of colors and types, and some even have the tags on them so you can reference what type of lilac it is. Although they are numbered, I could not find a reference chart online. It was a nice little stop on our way up to Niagara on the lake, and there are bathrooms located over by the flower clock that are open to the public.Written May 22, 2023
- Something in the air that was very relaxing and calming that made that clock stop. Maybe it was the wine tasting but was a very cute town.Written April 15, 2023
