NIAGARA FALLS STATE PARK, A YEAR-ROUND DESTINATION!!!
Niagara Falls Going Dry?
Maybe you’ve heard some news about Niagara Falls going dry. In fact, State Parks is considering designs to replace century-old bridges that provide a crucial pedestrian connection from the mainland to the scenic islands within Niagara Falls State Park. Replacing these bridges will require a short-term diversion of water flowing over the American and Bridal Veil Falls. The larger Horseshoe Falls, between Goat Island and Canada – over which 85 percent of the water typically flows – will remain active throughout the project. We are still in the design phase of this project, so it’s too early to predict when it will occur. State Parks will work to keep the public informed as we proceed, and we’ll work with our partners in the community on opportunities to help visitors enjoy the Falls in this rare state.
More details about the project are available on our website.
Also, please note, Niagara Falls State Park NEVER closes! We are open 24 hours a day, 7 days a week! Some attractions and areas of the park may be limited seasonally but you are always welcome to visit and get closer to Niagara Falls than you ever imagined!
A North American natural wonder, Niagara Falls flows with scenic might through Niagara Falls State Park. And just beyond its waterfall vistas, Niagara is filled with splendid discoveries and fantastic attractions.
Please be aware that restoration work at Terrapin Point is underway and access is therefore restricted. The work includes the installation of new railings, lighting, benches and other park furnishings as well as new pavers and landscaping. Additionally, upon completion in the Summer of 2016, Terrapin Point will be fully ADA accessible.

Pictures are great, but getting close enough to touch Niagara Falls inspires genuine awe. Millions of gallons of water rocket over Niagara Falls every minute – about 750,000 gallons each second! There’s no closer place to “feel Niagara’s flow” than from the decks, boats, vista points and trails of Niagara Falls State Park - America’s oldest state park.
With sparkling scenery year-round, thrilling attractions, family-friendly and interactive exhibits, miles of hiking trails and delectable dining options, Niagara Falls State Park gets you closer to the Falls than anywhere else. The park features classic adventures and vacation amenities to make the most of your trip, and no passport is needed to experience an unforgettable and breathtaking Niagara Falls vacation.
Dine at the Top of the Falls Restaurant, stand within feet of the Falls at the Cave of the Winds Tour, meet the legends and daredevils of Niagara in the Niagara: Legends of Adventure movie, make friends with the sea life at the Aquarium of Niagara and let the water cascade around you during the Maid of the Mist® boat ride.
It’s all here – start planning your Niagara Falls vacation experience today.
