Niagara Falls travelblog: Viewing the Falls from different spots

No Comments

From NewsOK.com:

My radio colleague, Jim Traber, made a great point with me the other day on The Sports Animal. Traber said Niagara Falls is a lot like the Grand Canyon. He is awed by Niagara Falls. He thinks it’s glorious. But when he gets there, he sees it, he’s impressed and he’s ready to go. Either to the casino or to the highway.

And it’s a valid question. After you’ve seen Niagara Falls, what then? Do you keep looking at it? How do you experience Niagara Falls for more than just 15 minutes?

Well, the Dish and I tried to answer that question Tuesday. And I think we did.

* We viewed Niagara Falls from various points at the top of the falls.

Reshaping Niagara’s scenic parkway

No Comments

From the Niagara Gazette:

For many years it served as a battleground of sorts in an at-times bitter community conversation about the value of the roadway.

Today, the parkway formerly known as Robert Moses has been renamed the Niagara Scenic Parkway and substantial portions on both the north and south ends have either been slated for large-scale changes or are already in the process of being reconfigured.

Financial support from Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s Buffalo Billion economic development initiative paved the way for new, multi-million-dollar parkway plans.

A statement from the DEC Tuesday evening said conservation officers and technical staff went to the main outfall from the treatment plant near the Maid of the Mist boat dock, after receiving a call about discolored water at around 3:40 p.m. on Tuesday.

Niagara Glen a little greener

From the Niagara Falls Review:

The Niagara Glen is a little greener after 37 Chinese students from two high schools in Beijing planted 10 red oak trees Saturday morning.

The trees represent a bond of friendship with Canada and Niagara Falls, said Yaping Lee, vice-principal of Beijing Wenhui Middle School.

“The taller they grow, the deeper our friendship will be,” said Lee.

The event was meant to celebrate both the partnership between Toronto Catholic District School Board and Canada Global Education Exchange, as well as build awareness of the importance of planting trees.

A visit to Prospect Point: Breathtaking views of Niagara Falls from state park

No Comments

From NewYorkUpstate.com (includes many nice photos):

It would be hard to be disappointed at the views from Prospect Point at Niagara Falls State Park, and that’s probably why more than 8 million people visit every year. The stunning view by day and by night can leave a visitor breathless and struggling for superlatives. You can walk out high over the Niagara River Gorge at the Prospect Point Observation Tower, or you can walk down to feel the spray coming off the Falls.

Niagara Parks plans pollinator garden route

No Comments

From the Niagara Falls Review:

Despite their small size, pollinating species such as bumblebees and hummingbirds have a major impact on the environment.

“Approximately 90 per cent of the world’s flowering plants depend on pollinators to reproduce, representing the crucial role pollinating species pay in maintaining our environment,” said Janice Thomson, chairwoman of the Niagara Parks Commission.

Niagara Parks on Friday unveiled a new pollinator garden at Legends on the Niagara golf complex.

The small garden will form part of Niagara Parks’ newly created pollinator garden route along the Niagara Parkway.
