About the Tunnel

About the Tunnel

A 2,200-foot tunnel winds through the depths of the Niagara Parks Power Station’s wheelpit. It expelled the spent waters used in the power station back into the Niagara River, at the base of the falls. Incredibly, the tunnel was excavated with only lanterns, rudimentary dynamite, pickaxes and shovels.
Work on the tunnel began in 1901 and was successfully complete by December 1902.

Beginning July 1, 2022, visitors can travel down 180 feet to discover the Tunnel at the Niagara Parks Power Station.

About the Niagara Parks Power Station

In 2021, after lying dormant for over 15 years, the doors to the Niagara Parks Power Station reopened to offer visitors an in-depth look inside one of the world’s first hydroelectric power station.
Repurposed artifacts, interpretive exhibits and interactive installations offer a first-hand look at how this hydropower pioneer was constructed without electricity, and how it harnessed the power of water to generate electricity for over a century.

The original equipment in the main generator hall was meticulously shined and restored to showcase the incredible power generating technology built in the early 1900s. The revolutionary works of inventors like Nikola Tesla, Thomas Edison and George Westinghouse are also highlighted in captivating stories from the archives.
