Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens
Horticulture lovers, photographers, and wary tourists looking for a respite from all the hustle and bustle of busy Niagara Falls attractions will want to save plenty of time to explore the Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens, the European-style gardens sitting on 99 gorgeous acres in Niagara Falls, Ontario.
First opened in 1936, these gardens provide guests with unbelievably beautiful views of allees, roses, herbs, vegetables, and more within the meticulously maintained gardens. See perennials, rhododendrons, azaleas, the world-famous rose garden with over 2400 roses within the grounds, which is also home to the Niagara Parks School of Horticulture and Butterfly Conservatory. The gardens are actually maintained by the students of the School of Horticulture.
Explore the thousands of species of plants on-site as you walk down the several different footpaths adjacent to tranquil ponds and native trees of grand stature. There is an onsite arboretum that features one of Canada's finest collections of ornamental trees and shrubs that you won't want to miss while on the grounds.
Each summer season you may opt-in for a classic Horse and Carriage ride with Sentineal Carriages as well.
