Letter: High praise for Niagara’s beautiful parks and the Tunnel at power station
Letter. Supplied

Dear editor:

Most newspaper letters complain about this and that.

Let’s look at what we have in our lovely town and surrounding areas.

My wife Irene and I have a parking pass for the Niagara Parks at a cost about $40.

We use it every week, Brock park, the butterfly gardens, Niagara Falls and others.

These Niagara parks and many others all are kept beautiful. The parks we see driving from Niagara-on-the-Lake through Niagara Falls and on to Fort Erie are so well maintained, clean, the grass and trees groomed.

We are so lucky to have such a dedicated organization to provide such beauty.

We thought we had seen it all. Then today we drove to the recently opened Tunnel at the Niagara Parks Power Station.

Wow, it’s the most spectacular afternoon we have experienced.

The old hydro-electricity plant by the Falls is open and the unique displays of the old workings is wonderful to see and it explains how the first water-powered plant worked.

Then we took the elevator down some 300 feet to the brick tunnel that was used to rush the water back downriver from the Falls.

You walk along this for quite a way until you are level with the river with views of both falls. Unbelievable.

I’ll stop here. Words cannot explain the experience.
