A family picnic at Queenston Heights

This isn’t directly in Niagara Falls, but Niagara Parks Commission does take care of the place, and it is just a short drive up the road, so I figured I’d include it.

On Saturday my family went up to Queenston Heights for a picnic. It is a huge park overlooking the Niagara River. It is also the park where Brock’s Monument is. We had a nice picnic, and the kids played around on the playground and got a bit wet on the (pathetic) splash pad. One of my sisters wanted to go up the tower, and asked me to go along. The last time I had gone up (many years ago), it was free, but they asked for a donation. It is now $4.50 for an adult. What? $4.50 just to walk up some stairs? It seems pricey to me. Needless to say, we didn’t go up.

As you can see by the pictures, it was a beautiful day!
