Great picnic areas. Great waters and miles of hiking. Only unfortunate thing is they charge more for parking now :( but I feel it's still worth it!

DO NOT FALL FOR THE BUS SCAM, but DO visit the beautiful falls. This new system started recently so that explains the previous good reviews and the photos of sights you'll never see with your $30 entrance fee. It didn't make sense that there were...More

Nice hike overlooking the city. The cliff is beautiful as are Tews falls. We didn't get to see Webster's falls because they charge an extra fee. But if you want to see Dundas Peak/Tews falls for free without paying stupid parking/entrance fees you can park...More

Check out parking and admission fee before you visit. They charge parking fee per vehicle, plus admission fee for each person. So 4 people and 1 car will coat $30. They also have annual membership but that may not be valid on weekends in summer...More

Websters Falls is great, the park is clean and inviting. Tews Falls is high but has very little water going over it just a trickle during high season. Both parking lots will be closed at Websters and Tews from now on from May to Nov....More

$20 for 2 people and they only accept cash. Niagara Falls is free. How can you charge this much to look at a natural attraction? Money grab. No thanks. Not with it.

You need to find a local who will get you to the memorable but secret garden entry point. Once you have it, you are in for a special treat for an hour, longer if you take a camera or friends. The river gorge rushes better...More

Questions & AnswersAsk a question
Are people allowed to bring food and picnic/ eat at Webster falls/ in the area? Because when I called the park and asked if there were picnic tables available, the girl I was talking to told me that there was no picnicking allowed at all. Even though some reviewers have said they have picnicked there before.

Some people have waded in the stream above, but that is a very dangerous activity. No swimming can be accommodated.
