things you wish you knew about Niagara Falls

Floral Clock

Between the Botanical Gardens and Queenston Heights Park stands one of the most popular sights to view in Niagara. The Floral Clock is a 12.2-m (40-ft.) diameter working clock that is one of the largest in the world.

Seeing the gardens in Niagara falls may give you some great landscaping ideas. Using over 15 thousand small plants that are placed close together, elaborate designs are created and changed twice a year. Gardeners use long ladders, placed over the clock, to trim it every two weeks to keep the intricate design.

While enjoying the annual and perennial gardens surrounding this more than 50 year-old structure, be sure to listen to the Westminster chimes that strike every 15 minutes.
