A large number of local politicians showed up at the grand opening/ribbon-cutting ceremony for the brand new Niagara Parks Power Station.
But for Niagara Falls MP Tony Baldinelli, it was reliving his youth. He used to work for Niagara Parks.
“As a former employee at Niagara Parks for over 18 years, I was thrilled to be there to congratulate my former work colleagues, including Chair Sandie Bellows and her fellow Commissioners,” said Baldinelli on social media.
“Their dedication and commitment to preserving and showcasing this impressive new attraction is admirable.”
Baldinelli said there is little doubt the Power Station was about to become one of the biggest draws at Niagara Falls, both for tourists and locals alike.
“(It) will become a true focal point in helping to promote and attract tourism visitation to Niagara, and assist with the local tourism recovery effort from the COVID-19 pandemic,” he said.
Niagara Parks describes the new experience like this: “The historic former hydroelectric power plant will open for guests to explore the breathtaking interior of this once dormant marvel of engineering and architecture.”
“Through repurposed artifacts, interactive exhibits and interpretive installations, guests will learn first-hand how this hydropower pioneer harnessed the power of Niagara Falls to generate electricity.”
