The thundering Falls, the small-town charm, the historic appeal — Niagara Falls USA is a bucket-list destination for many, and a place that’s open to all. If you’re traveling with a disability, rest assured that you’ll be able to fully experience the thrill of the Falls and the wonder of Niagara County’s many attractions.
Niagara Falls State Park: Accessible for All
All of New York’s state parks are committed to being accessible to all visitors, and the country’s oldest state park is no exception. The 400-acre Niagara Falls State Park — which serves as the gateway to the Falls and includes attractions like the Maid of the Mist, Cave of the Winds, the Observation Tower and more — recently underwent a big transformation, including ADA-compliant routes, overlooks, picnic tables and accessible parking on Goat Island.
- Wheelchairs are allowed wherever pedestrians are allowed. Sight See Rentals just outside of the park on Old Falls Street offers wheelchair, scooter, stroller and wagon rentals.
- The Niagara Scenic Trolley and Discover Niagara Shuttle both are lift-equipped and wheelchair-friendly.
- Service dogs are welcome wherever patrons are permitted to go regardless of other pet policies unless it poses a danger to the public utilizing the facilities.
