Long Description:

Located close to the Queenston-Lewiston bridge between Canada and the United States is this fully operational outdoor clock that Niagara Parks maintains and updates the floral aspects twice a year.

Twice a year a new layout of flowers are planted to refresh this popular attraction that makes just one of many great stops along this roadway that links historic Niagara-on-the-Lake with historic Fort Erie.

Completely free, as well as a stop for the People Mover, this is one location that appeals to the more adult crowd and young children. There is also a nearby lilac garden which blooms for a two to three week period in May-June. The clock itself is best viewed between mid-spring to mid-autumn.

This location was originally constructed by Ontario Hydro in the 1950's, in close proximity to the Sir Adam Beck power plant which also offers tours for tourists.

A great panorama of the various designs spanning an extensive timeline can be seen at Google Images - Niagara Falls Floral Clock
