Niagara Falls State Park overlooks the plunging water of Niagara Falls. With 160 hectares of beautifully preserved nature and a thrilling array of activities on offer, the state park is a wonderful way for families to experience the magic of Niagara Falls.
Get closer to the gorge than you ever imagined aboard the Maid of the Mist, an iconic boat ride to the foot of the American and Horseshoe Falls. Hear the deafening roar of 600,000 gallons of water plunging over the gorge as you learn about this amazing natural wonder.
Don’t miss the Cave of the Winds walkway, which brings you face-to-face with the crashing water of Bridal Veil Falls. Spend the afternoon soaking up stunning views from the park’s 24 kilometers of trails, then stick around to watch the seasonal fireworks from Prospect Point Observation Tower or Rainbow Bridge.
Niagara Falls State Park is located on Buffalo Avenue in the city of Niagara Falls, about 30 minutes’ drive from Buffalo Niagara International Airport or an hour bus ride from Downtown Buffalo. The state park has four parking lots and a shuttle bus, which stops at 15 locations within the park.
