Project will extend walkway from gorge to Prospect Point
The New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation will host a public information session regarding the expansion of the crow’s nest walkway and viewing platform. The meeting will take place from 5:30-7 p.m. Monday, Nov. 14, in the training room at DeVeaux Woods State Park, 3180 DeVeaux Woods Drive, Niagara Falls. A formal presentation is slated for 6:30 p.m.
The crow’s nest is located alongside the American Falls and is accessed by going down to the Maid of the Mist boarding area. Currently, a set of stairs allows visitors to walk halfway up to a photo op area and turn around and go back. The proposed expansion will allow visitors to walk all the way to the top of the gorge to Prospect Point.
The information session will provide renderings of the proposed concept and other information related to the project, which is expected to cost around $6 million.
