The Walls at the Falls

Cyclists ride past a kilometre-long stone wall in Queenston along the Niagara Parkway on Tuesday, August 23, 2016. Julie Jocsak/ St. Catharines Standard/ Postmedia Network

This photo is connected to the link below to a recent article in the St Catharines Standard about the dry stone walls along the Niagara Parkway near Queenstown Ontario. There are some beautiful and very historic walls there, some of which are in mint condition.

A few sections of the Parkway walls that have been damaged by vehicles or trees have been repaired either during Dry Stone Walling Across Canada workshops (in conjunction with Willowbank School of Restoration Arts Willowbank /DSWAcrossC Workshop ) or as private restoration projects. 





Mark Ricard, John Bland (two excellent Canadian wallers) and I cheerfully worked together to bring this wall back to its former glory.

  1. Nice work. Did you have to cut any tree roots?

    1. Just some small ones. Bridged over the big one.
