“Pretty, with lots of poo”
Reviewed 23 June 2014

Bring a tarp if you don't have a chair, so you can sit on the ground without sitting in goose poo.

The seagulls are scavengers and unruly, and I wish they would leave everyone alone. They were constantly begging us for food. The geese and ducks were more dignified (except for the poo).

“Another Perspective of The Falls”
Reviewed 22 June 2014

These are small Islands conected one afetr another to the US niagar Falls National Parks. From this location you see the river strenght before getting to the falls. they are very well mantained and with nice gardens and bridges. The sound of the river is great. Great spot to take a brake and chill.

“Great change from hustle and bustle of other attractions”
Reviewed 28 May 2014

Our family stopped here while at the falls and it was busy we had to drive around a few times to get a spot, It is a great nature area with ducks geese turtles and other pond animals. It was a great peaceful walk and out family really enjoyed it. Nice groomed paths, picnic tables and BBQs for those who want to picnic. Such a nice break from the money grab tourist traps

“Oasis in Niagara Falls”
Reviewed 6 March 2014

Great place for visitors to get away from the crowds . We visit the Islands quite often. At Christmas time for sure to see the lights ( please donate when you leave ) We are local seniors. We bring our lunch and enjoy sitting by the water, feeding the birds and people watching. On weekends, we think it's great to see large families around the built-in BBQ's cooking their national foods . When we have a gang of out-of-towners we stop at some sub place to get everyone their own sandwich, drink and off we go to the islands. Great fun, easy and the kids love the wildlife and the nature walk. We need more picnic tables maybe a few of the so called "senior friendly tables".

“A Treat at Christmas”
Reviewed 7 January 2014

Well worth a visit during the Christmas period. While you are in a long line to view the lights and displays, the cars move along slowly but steadily. There is an opportunity to give a donation before you exit the area to help with the cost of the lights.
