Description

Excerpt from Fifteenth Annual Report of the Commissioners for the Queen Victoria Niagara Falls Park, 1901 These several changes are now under consideration, and the Commissioners hope to arrive at a decision which will safeguard the interests of the park and at the same time conform as much as possible to the desires of the company, so 'as to ensure the carrying out of this work on a scale much more extensive than was at first contemplated. Notwithstanding the many petitions which have been made to the Government of Canada from time to time by municipal, historical and other representative bodies for the transfer to the Commissioners of the battlefield and ruins of old 'fort Erie, nothing has as yet been accomplished, and this historic spot which should be sacred to' every patriotic Canadian is still left uncared for. The Commissioners have again offered to take over these grounds and preserve them in a worthy manner, and as part of the Park System. The field operations of the Commissioners are shown in detail in the accompanying report of the superintendent of the park. The usual works of maintenance for the several portions of the park system have been carried on, and a number of improvements which were greatly needed and which will add very materially to the comfort and convenience of visitors, have been made.
