Niagara Falls, Ontario: Floral Clock
It's a little difficult to get people to stop at an area by a power plant. However, the good folks at Ontario Hydro came up with a solution. "We'll build a big floral clock," someone must have said.
Well, 59 years later and counting, it's still here.
Niagara Parks now runs the area, complete with a snack bar and rest rooms nearby. It's one big clock, the second-largest of its kind supposedly. The design is redone every year, and it is surrounded by a "water garden" which is nice as well.
You wouldn't want to make a special trip to Niagara Falls just for this, but it's a nice 10-minute stop on the bus route.
