While Joseph Davis State Park may need a bit of TLC, it is a well-known by birders around Western New York for a great place to view an array of birds that call Niagara their home. Visitors can enjoy a picnic, nature trails or even cast a line into the lower Niagara River.

The flow of water was stopped completely over both falls on March 29th 1848 due to an ice jam in the upper river for several hours. This is the only known time to have occurred. The Falls did not actually freeze over, but the flow was stopped to the point where people actually walked out and recovered artifacts from the riverbed!
