Floral Clock

Besides the majestic Niagara Falls, the Floral Clock is arguably the most photographed attraction here. The best part? It's free to witness. The floral design is changed twice a year according to the season. The face of the clock is maintained by the Niagara Parks horticulture staff. It is a fully functional clock, whose mechanism is kept working by Ontario Hydro. 

The clock is 40 feet (12 metres) wide, making it one of the largest floral clocks in the world. The face of the clock is filled with 15,000 to 20,000 carpet plants and colourful annuals. Behind the clock, there is a tower that reaches 7 metres tall which houses Westminster chimes that greet visitors each quarter hour.

Location: 14004 Niagara Pkwy, Queenston, ON. Parking, washrooms and a gift shop are provided just north at the Centennial Lilac Garden.
