Dufferin Islands is a popular area for locals and tourists alike. Made up of 10 acres of paradise, the quiet and secluded area contains several small islands connected by bridges and footpaths. In recent years, efforts have been made to further naturalize this area with the introduction of fish, the installation of bird feeding stations and bird boxes, as well as planting indigenous vegetation appropriate for this environment.
This area is also home to the Winter Festival of Lights from November to January each year, when several animated lighting displays are placed around the perimeter of the islands.
The area is a tranquil place to relax and enjoy nature. It is free to visit Dufferin Islands, vehicle parking here is metered.
Picnicking opportunities are available.
Located just south of the Falls on the Niagara Parkway, between the Niagara Parks Floral Showhouse and the Rapidsview Parking Lot.
