A Few of Niagara Falls Hidden Secrets
I have just finished reading once more Linda Bramble’s excellent book ”Undiscovered Niagara” published in the early 1990’s.
There’s a section in the book that tells about a number of Niagara Falls hidden secrets.
I’ve listed a few of her choices and added a number of my own. Here they are in point form.
-Hike into the Niagara Glen and marvel at the prehistoric geological formations that formed the Niagara River.
-Take a leisurely bike/wheelchair ride along the Niagara River Recreation Trail that runs parallel to the Niagara Parkway for 56 kilometres from Fort Erie in the south and Niagara on the Lake in the north.
-at the foot of Clifton Hill (Niagara’s Hill of Fun) you’ll find tucked away an outdoor amphitheatre called Oakes Garden Theatre. Here you’ll be able to get a spectacular outdoor panoramic view of both falls. Look at the back of the theatre and be impressed with a magnificent Japanese garden.
-Located behind the Floral Showcase 500 metres above the falls is a Fragrance Garden for the visually impaired. There are also plaques in Braille listing the various aromatic plants found her.
