What travellers are saying
- This place is breathtaking and will make all of your senses go Wild!

- A lot of photos and videos. Its a very nice experience to know about this historic place. very Clean areas, nice rides and secure place to go.Written September 13, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC. Tripadvisor performs checks on reviews.
- The park is walkable with plenty of paths and signs pointing to various sites. The park is where you can access the Maid of the Mist boat ride to the falls and Cave of the Winds where you get up close and personal with the falls! The new visitor center has opened but looks to still need more work to be complete. You can get something to eat, buy souvenirs, and use the restroom at this time. You can also find food, shopping, and restroom facilities on Goat Island.Written September 29, 2023This review is the subjective opinion of a Tripadvisor member and not of Tripadvisor LLC.

- The falls are one of the natural wonders of the world that everyone should see. Breathtaking! And the areas around the falls are worth exploring.Written September 11, 2023
- To those that “nay-say” the NY side of the falls…we loved them.
Fall Fireworks. Watching the water cascade over the falls. A great hike around goat Island.
We will return this winter to see the Christmas lights❤️Written October 1, 2023
- Don’t miss spending a little time on the observation tower taking in the views of the falls and the Canadian side. You will have to go here anyway if you plan to go on The Maid of the Mist as you will board the elevator to descend to the boarding area.Written October 1, 2023
- Outstanding views of the whirlpool and class 6 rapids. The park allows for enjoyment in the green spaces and on the trails. Seems like a lot of buses with tourists come through, and the visitor center is closed for renovation. The parking lot is pretty large and allows for quite a few vehicles. No entry fee is charged.Written September 9, 2023
- Pretty views but nothing really to do just different views of the river. It's a quick walk over a couple small bridges.Written September 28, 2023
- Awesome time. Great views and a nice walk. I got lucky with great weather too. Recommend and will return.Written June 10, 2023
- Great place to stop for information. The lady working there was very helpful. Gave us a lot of information on things to do in the areaWritten June 15, 2023
- This little aquarium has a lot of heart, especially since they provide a safe haven for rescued and non-releasable sea lions and seals. The aquarium is small and it can be seen in under an hour. The standouts are the adorable Humboldt penguins and the endearing sea lions. Don’t miss the entertaining, fantastic sea lion presentation/show which is very well-choreographed to music.Written July 15, 2023
- This mall is at the entrance to Niagara Falls, NY. We've been two days in Niagara, and on day 1 weather was pretty bad with strong winds and rain so we spent it mostly here.
We found good choice of stores and some bargain shopping. Good food court.Written May 29, 2022
- Amazing day out in the first crazy hot day in 2023. The trails were clearly marked and the views? Spectacular. Small kids may find this quite difficult. The drop is 196m so climbing up and down raises the heart rate for sure. The park and picnic area are pristine and a very large space with great washroom facilities.Written April 14, 2023
- This is a MUST VISIT Museum! I recommend it to everyone planning a trip to Niagara Falls - whether the visit is on the US side or Canada. The history of this community is important to understanding the fight and flight to freedom from slavery in the U.S.
The museum brings to life the important role that Niagara Falls, NY and its community of former slaves and abolitionists played in the success of the Underground Railroad. Our tour guide Jasiah was EXCEPTIONAL as she educated and engaged all in our tour group. The journey through the museum introduced me to heroic individuals whose names and courageous actions have been untold.
I am so very pleased that my family and I made this museum a part of our Niagara Falls experience. If you are traveling to/from a visit to the Falls, I recommend you include a visit to the museum on your agenda. You will leave enlightened and inspired by the knowledge of those who came before us.
A very special thanks to the leadership and staff of the Niagara Falls Underground Railroad Heritage Center!Written August 12, 2023
- Having grown up on Elmwood Avenue, one City Market away from Pine Avenue and Route 62, I've known this park all my life, I've always loved it, and I always will!!! :) Most of my childhood was in the 1960s and 70s, and although my parents, with whom my sister and I shared so many adventures in this park, are now interred in St. Joseph's Cemetery, adjacent to the park :( , many of the features which made this park so special to two little girls and their parents, are alive and well! :) The picnic tables, grills, and gazebos are all still there, servicing today's generations of happy family picnic-goers; although my physical situation is different now, I often walk through the front of the park that's adjacent to St. Joe's, and find that, in snow-free weather, the grass is quite manageable with the careful use of a walker! :) There is also a public restroom which is also manageable, but I prefer to use the one at Tim Horton's, across the street from the park! :) Hyde Park Pond is popular, again in clement weather, for fishing and small boats - fishermen and women have been known to come home with admirably sized fish, and even a few turtles, from this pond! :) The Rose Garden still blooms in the summer; the old 1960s/70s playground has been reconstructed and is a reasonably close facsimile; the Veterans' Memorial is new, only a few years old...and, Fall is coming, time for Hyde Park's old-growth trees to blaze in all their Autumn glory!!! :) For those of you who don't drive, getting to Hyde Park is easy: just take the NFTA Metro bus #55, which features a stop across the street from the park on the way up, and one directly in front of the park on the way back! :) See you soon, Hyde Park, with my camera!!! :)Written September 3, 2019
