Three Sisters Islands at Niagara Falls

When most folks think of Niagara Falls; it’s images like this, we think of.

I very much enjoyed the visit, we spent a full day on the Canadian side, and close to a full day on the American side. What I feel fortunate about is all the small waterfeatures we found on the American side.

Waterfeatures that are so small that ideas could be borrowed from them to re-create them in a residential setting. Including this one we found at Three Sisters Island.

This little set of falls was less than 12inches high and created some great sound. They key here would be to create a line of stones that are rounded over and have some decent overhang, with a steady supply of water. Nice effect,nice audio.


Three Sisters Islands are part of the Goat Island area on the American side. You can drive over, but I suggest you park in the main lot and use the trolley to get around on the American side.

One response to “Three Sisters Islands at Niagara Falls

  1. Yes, I have been there, and it is stunning — thrilling to be so close to the Falls, but in an area that feels (but isn’t!) so much safer. Often people who are contemplating suicide go into the water here — some cling to a rock and are rescued, while others go over the Falls to their death.

    Yep, it’s not always a barrel of fun.
