Feel the thrill of being at the river’s edge!

White Water Walk offers a first-hand lesson in the raw power and peril of the Niagara River’s Class 6 whitewater rapids, some of the wildest in North America. The roar of the river provides a deceptive calmness, the perfect ambiance for your walk among the many platforms that offer incredible views. The sight on this quarter-mile boardwalk will take your breath away!

As part of this self-guided experience, enjoy stories about the geology of the Niagara Gorge and the plant and animal life you may see on your visit to Niagara Parks.

Riverside Boardwalk

Riverside Boardwalk

Travel by elevator down 70 metres to reach the base of the Niagara Gorge and impressive quarter-mile of boardwalk that runs along the shoreline of the Niagara River. Prepare to be immediately immersed in the soothing roar of North America’s largest series of standing waves the moment you step out from the exit tunnel!

Make your way down the riverside boardwalk as you take in the crashing waves and enjoy an excellent view of the 410-million-year-old rock layers of the Niagara Gorge.

Viewing Platforms

Branching off from the boardwalk are several viewing platforms that allow you to get even closer to the breathtaking Whirlpool Rapids flowing by at a speed of 48 km/hr. These platforms provide some of the best photo opportunities in the entire park!
