Picture this; you drive throughout The Niagara Region, and each and every spot to stop at, you are bombarded not with a plethora of tourists, but with flowers and floral fauna like never before. Here in Niagara The Niagara Parks Commission certainly knows a thing or two about maintaining our parks, and therefore whichever park you hop on over to, you know it will be just perfect. Many of the parks have a variety of facilities such as picnic table seating areas, splash pads, soccer or football fields, tennis courts, playgrounds and so much more. One of the lovely things about The Niagara Region is the fact that they have leash-free dog parks, so if you've brought your 'sporty' dog with you than head on over to Burgoyne Woods Park where your dog can roam freely for once. Spend the afternoon picnicking at Queens Royal Park in Niagara-on-the-Lake or Montebello Park in St. Catharines. The beautiful thing about Queens Royal Park is that there is a gazebo, trail and perfectly maintained grass area where you can certainly plop yourselves down for the day and take in the beauty of the water and enjoy the laid back lifestyle that Niagara-on-the-Lake boasts. No matter which park you choose, you'll certainly feel like a kid again as the park was always the best spot to go on a Saturday afternoon and enjoy the day outside with your very best friends and family. So go on, take out your shoes, grab a soccer or football and let the games begin.
