Non Profit

Niagara Parks has provided a procedure for absorbing the fee for non-profit organizations under strict criteria and guidelines.  To qualify, the non-profit group must apply in writing (letterhead preferred) or e-mail with the details of the organization’s name, address, phone number and purpose and declaring that there is no fee charged for the group attending the Niagara Parks.  In addition, any bus service provider must be donating their services to the group, or, failing that, the group must be operating on a strict cost recovery basis and not profiting from the trip.  If your application is approved you will receive confirmation in writing.  That letter must be presented on the day of your visit at one of our bus management locations to receive a daily permit with the fee absorbed by Niagara Parks.
