Floral Clock at Queenston Heights

Floral Clock at Queenston Heights

14004 Niagara Parkway
Queenston Ontaro


This unique attraction next to the hydro dam along the Niagara River is a very popular stop on the Niagara Parkway.

The beautiful floral face is maintained by Niagara Parks horticulture staff, while the mechanism is kept in working order by Ontario Hydro, the organization that originally built the clock.

Intricate designs, comprised of up to 16,000 carpet bedding plants, decorate the face of the timepiece. The floral design is changed twice each year - it features viola in the Spring and four cultivars of Alternanthera along with green and grey forms of Santolina Sage during the Summer and Fall. California Golden Privet and Blue Festuca Grass may be used for contrast.

The finely-manicured grounds surrounding the clock feature bedding displays. A tower at the back of the clock houses Westminster chimes that mark each quarter hour. When the door into the tower is opened, you can catch sight of the clock mechanism and enjoy photographs that show the history of every face design all the way back to 1950.

An attractive feature is a 10-foot wide water garden that curves 85 feet around the base of the timepiece - it is a popular place to make a wish. Enjoy your visit to this horticultural showpiece.
