As the move towards creating a parkette on Lundy’s Lane in Niagara Falls get closer, the city is reaching out for input from residents.

Called the Lundy’s Lane Ontario Power Generation Parkette, the site is located on the north side of Lundy’s Lane, directly to the east of the OPG Canal.

“The overall goal is to create a unique public recreation space within the Lundy’s Lane Business Improvement Area that displays the City’s history of power generation and celebrates the areas’ natural heritage features,” said the city.

First created in November 2016, the Lundy’s Lane Streetscape has created a design for the park using what it believes are key design objectives. They include:

  • Create a unified design aesthetic with recent streetscape improvements (i.e., lighting, furnishings, gateway features)
  • Establish the BIA as a unique district within the City.
  • Create a space for local events, festivals, gatherings, and outdoor learning.
  • Provide a rest stop for tourists, pedestrians, and cyclists, including users of the Millennium Trail and the Gary Hendershot Trail.
  • Create a cultural attraction for the City’s history.
  • Provide an accessible and safe parkette space.
  • Integrate parkette features with the natural environment to provide a net benefit.
