Niagara Falls is a popular destination, with throngs of visitors travelling to see the incredible Falls. This summer, visitors on holiday weekends will find that areas in the tourist district have been transformed with an emphasis on pedestrian traffic. A partnership between Niagara Parks and the City of Niagara Falls has created a schedule of planned road closures throughout the core area of Queen Victoria Park. By closing these roadways to vehicular traffic, pedestrians will have better and safer access throughout the tourism area on holiday weekends that typically bring higher visitation to Queen Victoria Park. This will also assist Niagara Parks Police and Niagara Regional Police in managing the area, as well as providing controlled access for emergency services. The schedule begins with the Canada Day long weekend and will also be in place for the Civic and Labour Day holidays:
• Canada Day Weekend (Saturday, July 1 and Sunday, July 2)
• Civic Holiday Weekend (Saturday, August 5 and Sunday, August 6)
• Labour Day Weekend (Saturday, September 2 and Sunday, September 3)
On Saturday, July 1 and Sunday, July 2, the famed Niagara Parkway will be closed to vehicular traffic from Clifton Hill to Fraser Hill, beginning at 7 p.m. with a full road closure in place by 8 p.m. Clifton Hill from Victoria Avenue to Falls Avenue will be closed to vehicular traffic beginning at 8 p.m., along with Murray Street from the Niagara Parkway to Warren Avenue.
Murray Street from Warren Avenue (Skylon Driveway) to Fallsview Boulevard will remain open to provide access to the businesses and properties in the area. Access to Niagara Parks’ Falls Parking Lot will continue from the south.
All road closures will be at the discretion of the Niagara Parks Police and Niagara Regional Police Service and timing may be adjusted as required. In the case of inclement weather or visitation levels being less than anticipated, the road closures will be modified or cancelled.
During the road closures, the WEGO Green line will continue to operate from Rapidsview to Table Rock. WEGO Red line and Blue line will move to reduced routing due to the road closures, there will be no service to Table Rock and Clifton Hill from 5 p.m. to the end of the daily schedule. Service delays and disruptions should be expected for any routes travelling through the tourism area. For up to the minute bus arrival information please download and refer to the “TRANSIT APP”.

We believe these basic elements will help you bring your own unique experiences to life from your tour of Niagara Falls.
- Weather Sets the Scene
While you don’t have control over the weather during your visit, it can significantly impact your photography. Any day can make for a great shot. Ideally, a day with blue skies and some clouds makes for a comfortable day as you tour Niagara Falls and can provide a balanced scene and enhance contrast for sharper images. A bright and sunny day can produce lens flare which presents like a filter effect. However, don’t be disheartened if you do end up with an overcast day. Such conditions can add a touch of drama to your shots.
