The Niagara Parks Botanical Gardens are a thing of natural beauty. As you explore each patch of flora and fauna you feel as though you're miles away from any tourist destination and are within the most majestic forest. The gardens are where you capture timeless photos in front of The Floral Clock, stroll through The Butterfly Conservatory, check out what's in bloom and of course, stop to smell the vibrant roses. When you venture off to get back to nature at The Botanical Gardens, located in the heart of Niagara Falls, your love for understanding the basics of natural beauty, will be at an all-time high.
The gardens were developed way back in 1936, and with 99 acres of gardens the beauty will continue on for years to come. With azaleas, herb and vegetable plantings, an aviary, perennials, rhododendrons, and the world-famous rose garden featuring over 2,400 roses, this is surely the spot where you will stop to smell the thousands of roses aligning the path. No matter how big or small your passion is for gardening, this is the place to really get back to nature and experience the finer, perfectly manicured creations of the world. Get ready to embark on a journey in these gardens like never before.
