Queenston Heights Park
Nestled high atop the Niagara Escarpment, Queenston Heights Park combines leisure and history in one scenic location. At the entrance to this historic park, see the grand carpet bedding displays that surround both the Brock and Laura Secord Monuments.
Brock’s monument was built in 1853 and designed by William Thomas in a Neoclassical design. Made of Queenston limestone, the monument features a 16-foot statue of Major General Sir Isaac Brock who was killed in the Battle of Queenston Heights in October 1812. He was considered the founding hero of Upper Canada. The monument was unveiled in 1859.
