For over 60 years visitors have come to Discover Paradise at this lush oasis, just a short walk from the Falls. Collections of orchids, succulents and other tropical plant species are on display throughout the year, along with floral shows that reflect the changing seasons. Flying throughout the greenery are colourful tropical birds that may sing for your entertainment!

During the summer months, don't miss the spectacular gardens surrounding the Floral Showhouse, including one of Niagara Parks' extensive rose gardens, ponds and a fragrance garden where plants are identified in Braille for persons who are visually impaired. Wander along the paths or rest on a bench in the peaceful Artists Garden - you won't believe you are in the centre of the city!

    Take a Break!

    Let your ride take you to a new turnaround destination, or better yet take a tour that includes multiple stops along the way. You can only ride so far without refueling and taking a rest.  Numerous businesses certified as bicycle friendly can be found trailside or close to one of the many excellent route options in featured Ontario By Bike regions.

    Explore our new Ontario By Bike Map and discover great local cafes and restaurants; farm stops; wineries; artisans galleries; B&B's or hotel accommodations; bike stores, tours, rentals, indoor bike park locations; plus many more unique attractions and useful services.

  • Ottawa
    Ottawa

    The city of Ottawa has a vibrant cycling culture and now boasts over 600 km of bike lanes and paved shoulders, recreational and multi-use paths, as well as over 10,000 bike parking spaces and over 2,100 ring and post racks. In 2010, a pilot project was conducted to develop segregated bike lanes along Laurier Avenue in downtown Ottawa, the first of its kind in Ontario and is now a permanent feature of the city's streetscape.

    While visiting Ottawa, cyclists shouldn't miss the opportunity to explore the Capital Pathway Network, which includes more than 300 km of multi-use, off-road paths connecting world-class museums, art galleries, and other attractions. The Capital Pathway Network is also known for its two showcase pathway systems; the Ottawa River Pathway, as well as the Rideau Canal Western and Eastern Pathways, which hug the Rideau River and the Rideau Canal, Ontario's only UNESCO World Heritage Site. From Victoria Day weekend to Labour Day weekend, cyclists can enjoy Sunday Bikedays, where over 50 kilometres of parkways in Ottawa and Gatineau Park are reserved for cyclists, in-line skaters, runners and walkers.

    Truly a bicycle-friendly destination, in 2013, Ottawa was the first city in the province of Ontario to receive the gold-level "Bicycle Friendly Community Award" presented by Share the Road Cycling Coalition. There is no better time to visit the nation's capital by bike!

    Toronto and Greater Toronto Area

    Cycling in and around Toronto is a fun and fast way to visit unique neighbourhoods, attractions and enjoy nature in the city. Visitors to Toronto will be pleasantly surprised by its large bikeway network with 563km mix of bicycle lanes, off-road trails and signed routes, the relatively flat and grid like layout of the city makes getting around by bike easy.

    For those who want to stay off the city streets, days can be spent riding trails through parkland and forested ravines, following heritage watershed rivers and discovering the waterfront on the Martin Goodman/Waterfront Trail that covers 56km as it crosses the city from east to west.
