Chippawa Battlefield Park

A beautiful park with a bloody history

Niagara Falls

While it’s situated along the scenic Niagara Parkway, this park has a storied history. The Battle of Chippawa marked the beginning of one of the longest battles of the War of 1812.

At the battle’s conclusion, over 800 militiamen – not professional soldiers but regular citizens – lay wounded or dead. Despite its gruesome history, Chippawa is considered one of the most picturesque battlefield parks.

Today, visitors can access the park year-round and take self-guided tours at their own pace. Throughout the park is an array of panels outlining its history and explaining the role of the battle’s participants.

Small park along Niagara Parkway with flags, a monument and several illustrated panels whereby you can follow the events on the battlefield. Worth the short stop.

There were so many lives lost on this battle field during the War of 1812. Nice park where you can take a self guided tour reading the displays about the historical aspects of the battle.
