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.
From the Lockport Union-Sun & Journal:
State parks officials unveiled renovations at several key areas in Niagara Falls State Park this year, but the planned work is just beginning.
Three Sisters Islands, Luna Island and Prospect Point with groundbreaking ceremonies this year. Those projects make up a small portion of the $40 million worth of upgrades planned for the park over the next four years, with the bulk of the work set to take place on Goat Island.
From the Niagara Gazette:
Many visitors to the Niagara Falls State Park Wednesday definitely had mixed emotions about their travel plans.
They were thrilled to view the falls — even with a large section of the Prospect Point viewing area fenced off for remedial work— but disappointed that they would have to skip visits to other destinations due to the federal government shutdown. The name of the game, or so it seemed, was to change on the fly.
