Eat Local with Niagara Parks
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.
