Niagara Parks is pulling out all the stops this Saturday (May 20) to celebrate the 100th anniversary of the Niagara Glen Nature Centre (3050 Niagara River Pkwy) in Niagara Parks.

“To honour the importance of preserving the Niagara Glen, guests of all ages are invited to explore multiple nature activations including hiking and nature tours, Indigenous programming, bouldering workshop, and a mini-exhibit on the history of the Glen,” says Niagara Parks.

The annual Niagara Glen clean-up event was cancelled today (May18) citing rain. “Unfortunately, due to the inclement weather forecast for this upcoming Saturday, we will have to postpone the cleanup event this weekend. Our tentative date to reschedule will be Saturday, June 17.”

All four of Niagara Parks’ heritage sites will be reopening for the season, beginning on Saturday (May 20).

“Guests can rediscover Niagara’s fascinating history as they travel to the river’s edge to learn more about why Old Fort Erie is known as Canada’s bloodiest battlefield, retrace the steps of Canada’s most famous heroine Laura Secord, discover 500 years of printing technology at the restored home of rebel publisher William Lyon Mackenzie and enjoy the charm and demeanor of McFarland House, including the beloved conservatory tearoom.”

Also returning this year is the WEGO Niagara-on-the-Lake shuttle connection, which is open daily.

Some of Niagara Parks biggest attractions, including Voyage to the Falls with Niagara City Cruises have already started up and is looking to provide passengers with “stunning views of the Niagara Gorge, American and Bridal Veil Falls, and Canadian Horseshoe Falls.”

Niagara Parks’ attractions can all be visited with one of the loaded Adventure Pass packages, starting at just $59.

“From Journey Behind the Falls, at the very base of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls, to a ride over the vibrant, teal-coloured waters of the Niagara River aboard the historic Whirlpool Aero Car, and the serene setting of the Butterfly Conservatory, there’s no shortage of adventure to rediscover at Niagara Parks.”

New this year, the Tunnel at the Niagara Parks Power Station is getting international attention and is now part of the Niagara Falls Pass or Adventure Pass Plus.
