The Niagara Falls State Park transformation initiative won the Gold Award in the  2021 Outstanding Civil Engineering Achievement (OCEA) awards for its more intimate views of Niagara Falls, green infrastructure and pedestrian circulation.

The $65 million transformation of the country’s oldest state park consisted of more than 16 full-scale, interconnected projects across 400-plus acres, with the goal of offering visitors a more intimate view of Niagara Falls and modernizing surrounding facilities.

Modernized facilities included the attractions, infrastructure, buildings, parking facilities, lighting systems, pedestrian and vehicle circulation routes, and behind-the-scenes utility, mechanical, electrical, irrigation and stormwater systems.

The entire park is also now ADA accessible.
