Floral Clock Queenston Reviews
Varied arrangements at the Floral Clock Aug 18, 2005
The famous Floral Clock at Niagara Falls is located on the Niagara Parkway near Queenston Heights. The clock was built in 1950 by Ontario Hydro while new hydroelectric power stations were under construction nearby.
It was inspired by the Floral Clock in Edinburgh, Scotland, but this one is larger at 40 ft. across. It's called the Floral Clock because the clock face is decorated each year with different themed flower arrangements. In a room in the back of the base, one can see a display of photos of all the different arrangements through the years.
I remember first seeing the Floral Clock when I was nine years old. I enjoyed it on this trip, too. It seems very Canadian, like the hanging flower baskets one sees in smaller towns.
The clock is now maintained by Niagara Parks. There is no charge to visit it.
