Niagara Parks employees have finished putting a new face on the world famous Floral Clock located along the Niagara Parkway north of the falls at Queenston.
I was invited this past week to get into a bucket truck to take an aerial photograph of the clocks new design of six different sets of approximately 19,000 colourful pansies. It’s one of the most colourful designs I’ve ever seen on the face of the 12 metre (40 foot) diameter clock.
The clock is one of the largest in the world and keeps correct time. It was built by Ontario Hydro in 1950 after a design of a similar smaller clock found in Edinburgh, Scotland. Since 1977 The Niagara Parks Horticultural Department have been responsible for designing and maintaining the clock.
Here’s a photograph of some f the NPC employees responsible for this year’s clock design. Well done!
