Excerpt from Twenty-Third Annual Report of the Commissioners for the Queen Victoria Niagara Falls Park, 1908
Building extending in front of the Falls to the extreme southerly point of view of the Horse Shoe cataract about a quarter of a mile in length. Occasion was taken during the progress of this work to reduce the grades and more suitably arrange the elevation of the street railway tracks, as well as to provide suitable slopes for the grass plots at this celebrated view point.
The condition of the road leading to the main northerly entrance to the Park has long been in a very unsatisfactory state, which was much more apparent since the construction of the new Clifton Hotel. In order to remedy this a joint arrangement was arrived at, after protracted negoti ations, with the City of Niagara Falls and the International Railway for the construction of a permanent roadway of a class suited to the surround ings of this important point. This improved thoroughfare commences with the ordinary width at the Clifton Bridge and increases as it nears the Park entrance. Through the completion of this work the approaches to the Park now present a finished appearance in keeping with the fine granite columns and other surroundings at the gateway. There is yet, however, to be built by the electric railway under its agreement with the Park Commissioners a new walk from the Clifton Bridge to the Park entrance.
