Waterfalls of the Niagara Peninsula
Ontario, Canada


   While my primary interest is in waterfalls found in the Western Half of New York State, I have also compiled a list of waterfalls found in the Niagara Peninsula area of southern Ontario, Canada.

    In 1986 I contacted the various conservation authorities of the region. Hamilton sent me a list of 21 waterfalls, Niagara sent me a list of 7 and Haldimand-Norfolk knew of 1 for a total of 29. In 1998 information provided by friends and research by me had brought the total 89. As of June 15, 2005 the total of known waterfalls is 111. My thanks, in no particular order to: B. W. Vanredbrug, Mark Harris, J. J. Flint, Martin Stefanowski, Sylvia Wray, Steve Head, Joe Hollick, Nadeem Paracha and the private landowners for the information they have provided. My apologies to anyone I have forgotten to mention.

   Be sure to visit Hamilton, the Waterfall Capital of the World.

   In January of 2010 I donated my collection of 397 Canadian waterfall slides to the
   Canadian Niagara Falls Library.


The map below shows the location of the peninsula as defined by me.
