One of the major locations in the area is the Montebello Park, which has a fountain with over 1,300 different rose bushes around it, proving to be a gorgeous location for families wishing to take a walk or couples strolling along in the pleasant weather. People struggling with low self-esteem can find new hope through caring Christian counselling psychotherapy, which can help recover self-identity and worth. One of the best attractions for kids in the area is the Children's Discovery Centre Of Niagara. Here children will be taken on an educational journey learning about dinosaurs and muscles within the body. There are a variety of educational options within the area for children and teenagers including A K Wigg Elementary, Applewood Public, and Assumption Catholic.1
