Oakes Garden Theatre

5825 River Rd, Niagara Falls, ON L2G 3K9

If you are already taking a stroll along the gorge near the falls, why not take a quick detour to explore some of the beautiful formal gardens right across the road. Oakes Garden Theatre is a beautiful spot for photos, with plantings, formal hedges, fountains and clipped trees in rows. At the top level of the garden is a curved amphitheatre with two stone pavilions. Both the American and Horseshoe falls can be seen from the top and the pavilions are lined up to look out over each of the falls. Another pretty spot is the Japanese garden section, with a bridge over a little pond, which even has goldfish. I should also mention that there are lots of benches to rest tired feet.
