Floral Clock was one of the attractions. It was located along Niagara Parkway North and about 5-10 minutes drive from heart of Niagara. The numbers on the clock were labelled by these alphabets, "N-I-A-G-A-R-A P-A-R-K-S" and exactly added up to twelve letters, with "N" replacing "9" on a usual clock and so on in clockwise.The hour and minute hands ticked as time goes and were made of silvery metal.
Along Niagara Parkway North, there was a small park dubbed Queenston Heights Park. A tall monument in the middle of the park in remembrance of Sir Roger Hale Sheafee (1763-1851) Monument, erected by the Ontario Archaeological and Historic Sites Board. Major General Sheafee assumed command and lead a successful attack which dislodged an invading American force from Queenston Heights. Beside this, there were other monuments like "Laura Ingersoll Segord" as well as "The Colored Corps" fell between year 1812-1815.
Before reaching the end of driveway, there were abundance of wineries - Hernder Estate Wines, Inniskillin Wines, Stoney Ridge Cellars, and more. This small town was Niagara-On-The-Lake. Lined along this road were palatial houses facing the tranquil Niagara River, which holds water that once plummeted from great heights!
