Niagara Glen

The Niagara Glen is located 1 kilometre north of the Whirlpool Golf Course on the Niagara Parkway, Niagara Falls, Canada. This peaceful retreat boasts nature trails and a picnic area. Those who stop here and are prepared to do some hiking down the Gorge to the shore of the Niagara River will be well rewarded.

There is a new Totem Pole and Woodcarving Park on site now too: http://www.niagaraparks.com/nature/totem-pole.php. North America’s largest collection of hand-carved, one-of-a-kind totem poles. Over 500 have been placed in the beautiful Niagara Parkway setting overlooking the Niagara Glen and Great Gorge. Master Carver Frank Kim presents regular on-site carving and interactive demonstrations. They will re-open in the summer.

There is lots of interesting geology and biology to explore -- the Glen is a unique spot of beauty to the visitor.
