Floral Clock – Niagara Parks
The Floral Clock in Niagara Falls was inspired by the famous clock located the Princess Street Gardens in Edinburgh, Scotland. Completed in 1950, the Floral Clock is one of the largest in the world at 40 feet (12.2 meters) in diameter. This working clock chimes every quarter hour. The floral displays are maintained by the Niagara Park horticulture staff and the clock mechanism is kept in working order by Ontario Power Generation. The floral design is changed twice a year to complement the season. When the door to the Tower is open, visitors can discover how the clock mechanism operates. This floral showpiece has become one of the most photographed attractions in Niagara Parks and is free to visit.
