A few interesting facts about Niagara Falls
Niagara Falls is actually three falls: The American Falls, The Bridal Veil Falls and the Horseshoe or Canadian Falls.
Niagara Falls State Park is made up of several areas. Prospect Point is on the mainland and overlooks the American Falls. Goat Island is home to Terrapin Point, which provides access to the Horseshoe Falls as well as the American Falls via Luna Island. Three Sisters Islands, also on Goat Island, is a romantic wooded series of islands that juts out in the river just upstream from the brink.
Niagara Falls State Park is the oldest state park in the United States of America, established in 1885 as the Niagara Reservation, the first of several such Reservations that eventually became the cornerstones to the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.
Frederick Law Olmsted, landscape architect of Niagara Falls State Park, also designed Central Park in New York City.
3,160 tons of water flow over the falls every second. This accounts for 75,750 gallons of water per second over the American and Bridal Veil Falls and 681,750 gallons per second over the Horseshoe Falls.
The water falls at 32 feet per second over the falls, hitting the base of the falls with 280 tons of force at the American and Bridal Veil Falls and 2,509 tons of force at the Horseshoe Falls.
The Falls are capable of producing over 4 million kilowatts of electricity, which is shared by the United States and Canada.
Four of the five Great Lakes drain into the Niagara River, (Superior, Michigan, Huron and Erie) before flowing over the Falls and emptying into Lake Ontario.
