With 29-acres and over a quarter-mile of shoreline, the Stella Niagara Preserve is incredibly scenic, and is one of the region’s most ecologically and historically important places. The preserve is located on the Niagara River along Lower River Road in Lewiston just north of Niagara Falls. Because of the property’s gentle slope down to the river, it is one of the few natural landing sites on the Lower Niagara, perfect for launching a canoe or kayak. The off-shore area, known locally as the ‘Stella Drift,’ creates ideal conditions for fishing. Visitors can park at the Lewiston Senior Center in the lot nearest Pletcher Road and the baseball diamonds.
