Niagara Parks Greenhouse

This popular free attraction is visited by over 420,000 people on an annual basis. Located on the Niagara Parkway just 500 metres (1/4 south of the Canadian Horseshoe Falls), it is opened year round daily from 9:30 am.

It was originally created for growing  bedding plants used for the many display gardens in the Niagara region.

Besides the greenhouses there is always one of the several seasonal displays for you to apreciate.Flying tropical birds live in the Greenhouse. The tropical house features a collection of plants from around the globe.

There is also a Orchild Society here  with several prizes.The flowers are beautiful as you can see for these examples.

In summer there are also gardens and art to admire outside but in the winter time stepping inside this greenhouse is a most welcome change from the snow outside.

    It was lovely to have you visit my blog…but lovelier still to be here – visiting the Niagara Greenhouse! We have only visited the Falls once. Wish we knew about THIS place then (many years ago)! We were not so very impressed as so much seemed commercialized, etc. We DID enjoy our trip to the Canadian side – especially Niagara-on-the-Lake. We’d return THERE in a minute.

    I’ll be back to spend more time with you, but for today, I truly enjoyed the color and beauty in this lovely place.

    Oh beautiful photos – I love orchids – my father was an avid orchid hobbyist, so I always love to see them.
