#8 of 9 in Nature in Niagara Falls
Reservoir State Park is a 132acre state park located in the town of Lewiston in Niagara County, New York, United States. The park is situated on the south shore of the Robert Moses Power Plant Reservoir, north of the city of Niagara Falls.
Reservoir State Park is situated within the boundaries of the Robert Moses Niagara Hydroelectric Power Plant property. The park is owned and financially supported by the New York Power Authority and operated by the New York State Office of Parks, Recreation and Historic Preservation.
The park offers picnic tables with pavilions, a playground, a nature trail, hiking, biking, fishing, cross-country skiing, sledding, snowmobiling, and fields for model airplane flying. There is a 150yd long field that can be used as a golf driving range. The park also includes three tennis courts, eight softball diamonds, two basketball courts, and a roller hockey court.
A $6 million improvement project, funded by the New York Power Authority under an agreement with the Federal Energy Regulatory Commission, was completed at the park in 2012. The project focused on refurbishing many of the park's sports fields, improving accessibility at the park's playground, and constructing a warming hut near the sledding hill.

  • I love coming here to fly my kites. When the wind is just right it is a perfect place to fly. It is so wide open so you can't interfere with anyone else around. And most times there usually isn't a lot of people around. This the first time my wife and I have walked to the top to get an open view of the area. It really is a wonderful view.
  • This is the best place to walk or run. The path and park are well maintained!! Lots to do besides that... tennis courts,basketball courts, even outdoor gym type equipment throughout the walk.
