Why not go lo­cal on your next trip to Ni­a­gara Falls? Es­tab­lished in 1885, the Ni­a­gara Parks Com­mis­sion has long of­fered vis­i­tors the op­por­tu­nity to ex­pe­ri­ence the 56-kilo­me­tre Ni­a­gara River cor­ri­dor through its beau­ti­fully pre­served park­land, nat­u­ral at­trac­tions, her­itage sites and golf cour­ses. But the Ni­a­gara Parks Com­mis­sion is also com­mit­ted to ac­tively pro­mot­ing the re­gion’s lo­cal in­gre­di­ents and cui­sine. All five of the full-ser­vice res­tau­rants op­er­ated by Ni­a­gara Parks are Feast ON cer­ti­fied by the On­tario Culi­nary Tourism Al­liance (OCTA), which means they source 30-50 per­cent of their food prod­ucts from On­tario, sup­port­ing lo­cal pro­duc­ers and artisans. Be sure to make a stop at El­e­ments on the Falls, helmed by cel­e­brated Chef El­bert Wiersema, where the lo­cally in­spired menu in­cludes dishes such as Great Lakes burg­ers, North­ern On­tario rain­bow trout and sal­ads with ice wine vinai­grette, all served in an up­scale set­ting fea­tur­ing panoramic views of Horse­shoe Falls.
