Most of Niagara Falls can be really tacky and overly touristic. That's what makes this spot so special, it's the complete opposite. It's a great place to relax with a picnic and enjoy the views of the falls. The landscaping is very pretty and there are lots of places to sit and relax. It is located right at the base... More

Awesome spot for group or wedding photos. It's not crowded and you can see the falls. Lots of benches and shade. The round platform in the middle is bar height. The trees along the edges are good for framing couples shots with the falls in the background.

Nestled against the River Parkway at the bottom of Clifton Hill and The Oakes Hotel is a little slice of tranquility. Often called the Secret Garden, it is a complete opposite to the noise and neon that surrounds it. Beautifully landscaped and superbly maintained, this is the one spot where NORMAL is the word of the day. This is a... More

My husband and I walked around these gardens whilst touring around Niagara Falls. They are very well maintained, beautiful to relax in and idle to sit and have a break whilst providing a wonderful photo opportunity

We first saw this place in 2007 while on the bus and couldn't resist getting off to check it out. Not too much to say about it. It's a peaceful, accessible place to escape the Niagara crowds. Beautiful gardens and classic structures.

I love this garden it's in the middle of all this excitement but so quiet to just sit and relax. The lawn and surrounding gardens is so beautifully maintained. We stop here every time we are in Niagara Falls

The Oakes Garden Theatre is located in the Clifton Hill neighborhood of Niagara Falls and is very close to the Rainbow Bridge, the Candy Planet Ice Cream Parlour, the Grand View Market place, and the Sheraton on the...

Entrance to Queen Victoria Park in Niagara Falls, nice formal garden, like a mini-botanical garden, a little oasis in the chaos of the Clifton Hill area. Basically just a nice walk-through.
