The Niagara Glen

Explore the Gorge

The Niagara Glen created about 8,000 years ago, when Lake Erie dumped water into Lake Ontario via a waterfall called Wintergreen Falls. The park consists of a section of dry riverbed called Wintergreen Terrace at the level of the Niagara Parkway, and a jut of land 118ft below called the Wilson Terrace. The Wilson Terrace lies at the edge of the Niagara River, and provides a good view of the river’s narrowest point, known as Devil’s Hole, and the Cripps Eddy, a small bay with 2ft tidal surges caused by cross currents from the whirlpool to the southwest
