Niagara Parks has made its reinvestment in the Niagara Glen Nature Centre a priority, responding to the continued growth and popularity of this site as a renowned outdoor destination for hikers, cyclists, conservationists, boulderers and anyone seeking an opportunity to connect with nature.

Parking rates revised for Niagara Glen

From the Niagara Falls Review:

The Niagara Parks Commission has slashed its proposed annual parking fees in half at the Niagara Glen Nature Centre.

The provincial agency announced in September paid parking would begin at the Glen – which had previously offered free parking – starting in the spring.

Daily parking rates, between May and October, would be $1.25 per hour to a maximum of $10 a day, or users could purchase an annual pass for $30.

Soon after the parking rates were announced, a change.org petition was created calling on Niagara Parks to maintain the status quo at the Glen.

“The Niagara Parks are Niagara’s green space for free, healthy, happy, family activities. Let’s tell Niagara Parks that we want to continue to have free access to the Niagara Glen (Steel Stairs),” reads the petition letter.

In less than two months, the petition has garnered more than 1,000 signatures.

From Niagara This Week:

Visitors will now have to pay for parking at two Niagara Parks lots.

Visitors to Thompson Point will be charged for parking starting this month while the same will come to the lot at the Niagara Glen Nature Centre starting next spring.

In a news release, the Niagara Parks Commission said it is introducing paid parking to “better manage and control the limited number of parking spaces at these locations, as well as to reduce the heavy congestion of vehicles, which occurs at these popular nature sites, during the peak tourism months.”
