Located in the City, at Hyde Park, Niagara Falls, the little pavilion sits in the middle of Hyde Park Lake. Concerts are held here in summer. This is Duck Island (Senior Citizens Park). Should have ducks, right?
A pretty lake is the park’s focal point, along with a famous rose garden. Hyde Park Lake is surrounded by greenspace in summer and covered in snow and ice in winter. Openings in the lake’s surface are enjoyed by the Canada Geese. The ducks are curiously absent today.
The lake is stocked with trout each year and is used for a fishing derby held annually.
Residents and visitors come to feed the ducks and geese. You can see my take on feeding ducks here. Also, this post notes tragedies that happen at and around the Falls.
The Canada Geese are enjoyed by many. But not so much by the golfers at the Hyde Park Golf Course next door.
They are not very friendly, but you can get pretty close to them if you dare. Honking is sure to start. They gave me a few honks.
This is looking off in the direction of the City. The park is large, encompassing 580 acres and is maintained by the City of Niagara Falls, USA.
Here, the geese had enough of me and are making their exit, looking a bit indignant I might add.
You would think flying would be more practical than trudging through the snow.
And of course, what park would be complete without the squirrels.
A pretty little red one, very happy for the peanut. But, it should not have been a salted one.
