Niagara Falls, ON – In response to the current global health crisis and to protect the health and safety of staff and guests, Niagara Parks’ public-facing facilities and outdoor recreational amenities will remain closed until further notice, aligning with action taken across the Province and country to fight the spread of COVID-19.

Niagara Parks first closed its public-facing facilities on March 14, 2020, with tentative plans to reopen on April 6, the original reopening date of publicly funded schools in Ontario which has since been adjusted. Effective March 31, Niagara Parks extended closures to include all outdoor recreational amenities, including remaining public washrooms, picnic areas, playgrounds, park shelters and any other item that is high touch or encourages the gathering of people. These closures will be in effect until further notice.

Niagara Parks will be closely monitoring ongoing developments and announcements from all levels of government and public health officials to determine next steps, including potential reopening dates. Niagara Parks’ website will remain up to date with the latest information and guests are encouraged to contact info@niagaraparks.com with any questions, concerns or requests.
