New Bouldering Program at the Niagara Glen

The Niagara Parks Commission (NPC) is pleased to announce a new Bouldering Program in support of the conservation of the Niagara Glen Nature Area.

Historically, bouldering was a means of training for longer climbing routes and mountaineering. Over the past 30 years, bouldering has evolved into a popular sport with appeal as a health-conscious physical form of human-powered recreation.

Bouldering’s social aspects of community and camaraderie has created an expanding number of enthusiasts. The Niagara Glen has become noted world-wide for its bouldering opportunities, and the need for programming was recognized to assure the protection of the physical, cultural and ecological integrity of parks.

Bouldering Permits will be available for purchase ($20 fee and signed waiver required) at the Niagara Glen Nature Centre (previously known as The Feather in the Glen), located at 3050 Niagara Parkway, Niagara Falls, Ontario.  Permits can also be purchased at the Butterfly Conservatory, located at 2565 Niagara Parkway, Niagara Falls, Ontario.
