Parks

De Veaux Woods 

 
 
De Veaux Woods State Park is located north of the city of Niagara Falls, off the Robert Moses State Parkway between Whirlpool State Park and Devil’s Hole State Park. The park was once the De Veaux Campus of Niagara University, until acquired by New York State in 2000 and converted into a park. De Veaux Woods State Park is listed with the State and National Register of Historic Places. A fifth of the park is occupied by historic or old growth forest dating back before the time of the first European settlement in Western New York. 

De Veaux Woods State Park opens year round to visitors, from sunrise to sunset and admission is free. The park is home to red, white, and black oak trees as well as various shrubs, herbs, and wild flowers. There is a short yet scenic biking and hiking trail leading to the Whirlpool State Park and Robert Moses Trail. Amenities include a kid’s playground, picnic ground with tables, restroom facilities (available from mid-May to late October), and two baseball diamonds. In winter, there is an ice-skating rink that opens throughout the week and equipped with lights for skating in the evenings.
