For the first time ever, Niagara Parks will open its renowned Whirlpool Golf Course during the winter months as the Great Canadian Winter Lodge, offering snowshoe rentals, winter trail access, and a specially crafted menu with comfort food and drinks on weekends from December 28, 2019 through to March 29, 2020 (weather permitting).
Niagara Parks’ marked trails at Whirlpool Golf Course meander through snow-dusted trees that line sections of the golf course, named for its iconic location above the Niagara River Whirlpool. Self-guided short, medium and long trails offer visitors of all skill levels an opportunity to enjoy spectacular winter sights along the scenic Niagara Parkway at their own pace.
