Niagara Falls State Park


Niagara Falls State Park is home to over 400 acres of lush landscape and wildlife, the beautiful Falls themselves, and many famous attractions. Niagara USA offers a breathtaking view of one of nature’s marvels and an experience that will last a lifetime.

First discovered in 1678, by French explorer Father Louis Hennepin, Niagara Falls was one of America's first icons, luring explorers, daredevils and millions of visitors with its untamed beauty, thundering roar and tremendous power.

World-class attractions such as the Maid of the Mist and Cave of the Winds, offer the eight million visitors each year an opportunity to feel, see and experience the rush of Niagara's waters. At the Frederick Law Olmsted designed park, the oldest state park in the nation, a natural splendor allows the park to be seen as nature intended it to be seen.

Each year, millions of people don sandals and ponchos to take part in a close up view of the American and Bridal Veil Falls on the Cave of the Winds. What most people don’t know is that the very decks they stand on are torn down and re-built each and every year. Due to frigid waters in the spring, teams of park employees work for only 20 minutes at a time re-building the famous decks.

The State Park is open 365 days a year, 24-hours a day. You can walk through the park or take the Niagara Scenic Trolley ride. The Niagara Falls Discovery Pass is available for purchase and will save you 29 percent on five attractions in Niagara Falls USA, and over $50 in coupons for other exciting attractions.
