Queen Victoria Park
The beautiful park that sits opposite Niagara Falls is home to iconic displays. Shimmering blue and white lights of the Zimmerman Fountain welcome guests to Queen Victoria Park, from the corner of Falls Avenue and Clifton Hill, just a few steps from our hotel. The park is also home to a colourful collection of spiral trees at Murray Hill while old growth trees throughout the park drip in lights to resemble Spanish Moss trees and light up walking paths.
Signature illumination displays can be viewed starting from the bottom of Clifton Hill and travelling an 8km stretch. Along the scenic drive you will encounter the popular Canadian Mountie display, Noah’s Ark, brilliant heralding Angels, and light wrapped trees that shine in the dark.
This 10-acre series of islands and walkways is a popular picnic area in warmer months, but in winter it shines as host of some of the Festival’s most beloved displays. The nature theme features Canadian wildlife in brilliant light. From a life size moose, to “Harvest Moon” featuring animated ducks, and a show stopping Woolly Mammoth.
