Instead of the usual pictures of the falls here are a few pictures of Niagara Falls Queen Victoria Park, Canada. There is more to see at Niagara Falls that just the water falling over the Horseshoe Falls. The park has great views, beautiful flower gardens and a very calm and less busy place to relax and enjoy the view.
The first picture in this post of the flowers and the American Falls is the view from the police department (picture just above). At least the view is pleasant if the work isn't always the same.
Samuel Zimmerman built the fountain for $12,000 just before his death in 1857.
