Short Hills Provincial Park

The largest park in the Niagara region

Covering 660 hectares of land, Short Hills Provincial Park is the largest in the Niagara Region. It spans seven trails including the Paleozoic Trail, which offers a spectacular view of Swayze Falls. The park also contains a wide variety of animal and plant life including deer, wild turkeys, and many species of birds.

The park is named for the short hills that appear throughout as a result of glacial erosion more than twelve thousand years ago. If you’re a nature lover, you owe it to yourself to stop here, if only for a brief survey – its biodiversity and scenic beauty is astounding.
