Indoor activities to do at Niagara Parks
When the temperatures dip below zero, the mist rising from the Horseshoe Falls transforms Niagara Parks into a sparkling winter wonderland. While this wintery transformation accentuates the wonder and beauty of Niagara Falls, an indoor break from the chilly weather is sometimes much needed! Here are some indoor activities you can enjoy with the whole family at Niagara Parks this winter.
Indoor Paradise at the Floral Showhouse
Enter a floral paradise at this lavish indoor garden and wander through rows of rare tropical plant species, seasonal blooms, orchids, succulents and more. The Floral Showhouse is just a short walk south from Table Rock Centre and the Horseshoe Falls making it a perfect indoor stop during your exploration of Niagara Parks.
Experience a tropical oasis at the Butterfly Conservatory
Admire the beauty of over 2,000 vibrantly coloured, free-flying butterflies at one of the largest glass-enclosed butterfly conservatories in North America. Winding pathways through lush vegetation and trickling waterfalls will transport you to an indoor tropical oasis, away from the cold winter weather!
Travel back in time to witness Niagara’s Fury
Travel back in time 10,000 years to re-live the ancient story of the formation of Niagara Falls without having to face harsh weather conditions…at least not for long! Step inside our 360-degree theatre and witness the power and beauty of Niagara Falls as water sprays and snow falls around you in a (much warmer!) simulation of the last ice age.
