Niagara Parks Media Room

Since its establishment in 1885, Niagara Parks has remained a self-financed agency of the Ontario Ministry of Heritage, Sport, Tourism and Culture Industries, entrusted to preserve and protect the land surrounding Niagara Falls and the Niagara River.

Niagara Parks offers visitors the opportunity to authentically experience and interpret the 56 kilometre Niagara River corridor through our sprawling parklands, natural attractions, locally-sourced culinary offerings, celebrated golf courses and restored heritage sites.

Our media center is designed to provide photographers, bloggers, travel writers and journalists with the latest updates on Niagara Parks. Here you can explore story ideas, inquire about travel media assistance and film and photograph permits, and access media releases, fact sheets, event listings and our image library.
