Niagara Parks set to open new attraction at power station
Niagara Falls is getting another tourist attraction today.
The Niagara Parks Commission is officially opening the tunnel experience at the Niagara Parks Power Station.
CEO David Adames says the tunnel was built back in 1905 and it took the water being used to make electricity back to the Niagara River, "It is a 2200 foot tunnel that starts underneath the Niagara Parks Power Station which is located south of the horseshoe falls but once guests go down an elevator and walk through the tunnel they end up coming up on the north side of the horseshoe falls with a spectacular view of the lower Niagara River."
The tunnel opens to the public today, Friday, July 1st.
Tim Denis is joined by Martha J. Lockwood of Central United Church, and Rachel Braithwaite, executive director of the St. Catharines Downtown Association
